The main advantage of the SLT technology is that the cameras have full time PDAF whether using the EVF, rear LCD or during video. The camera is full time live view and is not fitted with a CDAF sensor.

Which, I believe, is what keeps them from initiating a mirror up feature.  I don't think users would mind losing AF altogether in a flip up mode... but Sony might be afeared that consumers would reject any mode that didn't allow AF.

Really don't think Sony understands how many users want to use their technology.
