Mirror mechanism failures in DSLRs are quite rare. It's not like they've been making them for 50 years or so.  I'd suspect EVF failures are more common at this state of maturity.

Not much weight to a pentamirror or the moving mirror. And since right now anything with a decent EVF costs *more* than a number of DSLRs, asserting cost savings is not well supported.
