An OVF DSLR is not outdated, because it does not and will never have anything that is permanently blocking light from the sensor.

An OVF DSLR has no bayer array? If it does, you are lying. Everything you put in front of the sensor will block light. Lenses, filters, bayer arrays, microlense arrays, you name it. The SLT mirror is a minor light loss compared to all of that.

Sony, a couple of years later, seems finally also have understood that this is not good.

Sony are not about to remove the bayer array. Nor the SLT. In order to get an image you need things in front of the sensor that permanently block light from it. Otherwise all you'll get is a big fuzzy blob instead of an image.
