It is indeed all speculation.

but if Sony does indeed start building mirrorless A-mounts.... Then will future A-mounts be a backwards step in autofocus, just like the dSLT was a backward step in high-ISO performance.

Probably yes. The SLT design brought a number of benefits along with a number of drawbacks. There is no reason at all to expect a mirrorless A-mount design to come without unique drawbacks.

BTW, would anyone like to speculate on the unique benefits of a mirrorless A-mount (not E-mount) design?
