That runs a bit counter to your interest in "smaller kit", as adapted DSLR lenses are typically bulkier than native XF ones...

I didn't mention adapted DSLR lenses, I just described what I'm currently using (which happens to be mostly small primes).  I'd probably buy the 18-55 for travel if I do buy an XE2.  I may use adapted DSLR glass as well.

FWIW,  primes up to about 100mm are often about the same size as mirror-less lenses and some are smaller.  There are huge numbers of primes out there (MF and AF) that have filter sizes of 46, 49 & 52mm - hardly large.  I acknowledge that fast zooms and longer teles for DSLRs are larger but I don't plan to use them on a mirror-less camera - I'll keep my DSLR for that.  To me, and for me, large and fast zoom lenses seem to defeat the purpose of going mirror-less, but it's absolutely each to his own.
