I don't really see the point of a DSLR with transluent mirror but I guess those clever Sony engineers would find a way to coat a glass substrate with their beamsplitter coating. Might even be much easier than using some kind of foil.

Except the refraction through the glass would become an issue as it has to be angled. The secret of lack of chromatic aberration from the SLT mirror is its thinness. It's a non-trivial (and costly) task to find a material with wavelength independent refraction index.
