It reality it makes sense.  The first round of MF digital were simply retreaded MF SLR technology with a different back.  You have all the issues with a mirror box with MF SLR - except the mirror box is bigger cost more to build causes more vibration, etc.  With the mirror-less technology coming along, a MF digital based on a mirror-less design makes a lot of sense, would be less expensive to build.

There are a few hurdles. First sensor cost is proportional to the sensor area not the linear dimension of the sensor.  Secondly the EVF would have to be better than they are today and third new lenses would be required.  However, it would be a good move.
