I completely agree. To me portability was about weight and it is only 90g heavier than GH2 which I can live with. In terms of pocketable, the GH series was never pocketable anyways and once you add the micro four thirds lenses the whole system is significantly ligther than APS-C systems including mirrorless APS-C systems.

Interesting comparison. I'm more sensitive to weight then size. At half a pound less, the GH3 would be much more comfortable around my neck then the K-5. I've found the accessory grip a necessity with the OM-D, which has made that larger. But everyone's hands, and requirements, are different.
