Multimedia is here to stay...

Whether people here shoot a lot of video, or none at all is beside the point.  In 2013 as multimedia imaging has become is the norm, a high-end camera with poor video capabilities simply will not appeal to as wide an audience as the competition.

It is also wasteful to implement high quality IBIS and not bother to add 24p or 60p, high bit rates, a mic and headphone input, uncompressed HDMI, etc., but video has never been a focus of Olympus.   But 30p alone is not going to get it done for most of us, which is why the GH3 is looking like the best all-around m43 camera at the moment.  That probably won't change with the E-M1 but nobody knows for sure until it's officially announced.
