Here is the big question. Do you think Canon will use their muscle to get Sigma to make smaller/lighter lenses for their new 4/3 cameras...ones that won't work on NEX?
I am betting yes.

I'm betting no, because it would be much cheaper to make the same lens and just switch mounts. Sigma already compromised their new offerings for m4/3 by making the same 2 lenses for m4/3 and e-mount, which I predicted last year. Since the Canon sensor is potentially in-between m4/3 and aps-c, I'd bet that Sigma will make the same lens for m4/3, Canon mirrorless, and e-mount, and just change the mounts, which gives the advantage to Sony.
