Yes, the physical dimensions of the GH3 take it into dSLR territory, but they are not the only criteria that matter. The weight of the GH3 body only with battery is 550g, while the Canon EOS 6D tips the scales at 770g (again for body only with battery). That is a 40% increase in weight compared to the GH3 before you even start to consider the size and weight of the lenses and the cameras' relative suitability for those of us with large hands or a taste for quality video recording.

If small size is what really matters for you then the GH3 is not the camera for you. Take a look at a Pen mini or a GF5.
