Perhaps those wanting heroic video specs are actually hoping to 'get something for nothing'? Now that doesnt make sense to me.

$1500 >>>>> nothing.

I think the people really wanting heroic video specs are going elsewhere... meaning less sales to Olympus and for the m43 format in general. That effects all of us: slower product introduction (cameras, lenses, accessories, 3rd party lens development), and in some cases (US retail) lack of product presence/support in general.  All it would take is a tweak of the firmware, such as Canon finally conceded to with the 5D2 (30fps auto -> 29.97fps and manual controls, then eventually 23.976fps was enabled).  The 5-axis IBIS for video (the part so hard, only Oly have ever managed it) is already there.
