No, that'd be a medium format camera equipped with a handful of high-quality prime lenses, as results of upsampling are never as versatile as capturing a larger, more detailed image to begin with in terms of producing a final image.

It's a tad impractical for some situations (such as street shooting, or photographing a classical concert), but then so are 35mm SLRs and f2.8 zooms (such as in street shooting, or photographing a classical concert; funny that).

Actually, no. In order to meet the range of 14-200mm at f/2.8 you need to go with FF. Additionally, the high ISO capabilities of today's FF's far surpass the ability of any medium format back. As such, medium format takes a backseat in terms of versatility of image quality in a variety of circumstances, even if it excels in a couple of very specific areas.
