Let's start from the facts that:

a) Ricoh does not have the resources to throw at FF that SoCanikon does

Ricoh is larger than Nikon

IBIS is a must. Otherwise so many K-mount FF lenses wouldn't have image stabilisation.

I suspect the K-3 body is already big enough. But I doubt if 24 MP is enough - that sounds like a cop-out.

I think Ricoh recently said they plan to use the K3 body for a future FF offering.  (Maybe I imagined it).  My impression of Ricoh is they are swinging for the fences every time now, they'll use the best sensor they can obtain and are probably prototyping the 36MP with plans to use whatever improvements Sony can make by the time of launch.  Same sensor in a digital LX? hmm, if they get the pricing correct they'd sell a bunch of those.

Cheers.
