Excellent analysis, even if I probably won't be buying into that ecosystem.

I didn't think I really needed that stuff either. But now I love being able to transfer a few pics to my computer over WiFi. The NEX apps for bracketing, time lapse etc. leave some things to be desired but they are certainly on the right track.

And the attack is coming from the consumer or "low" end, not from the "pro" end.

Yes, and from consumer electronics companies versus camera/optics companies.

Imagine Apple or Samsung churning out a high end mirrorless camera leveraging all of their smartphone experience. Possibly teaming with someone like Carl Zeiss (or even Nikon) for the better glass just as Sony have done!

It's a revolution and the chances are some blood will be spilled.
