All in all, there is very little room to improve at this sensor size, although I will be pleasantly surprised if there is some kind of major breakthrough on low light or DR at some point ...

Panasonic's micro color splitter sensors promise to nearly double light sensitivity by eliminating the need for the Bayer filter array that currently absorbs about half of the incident light. Seeing is believing, of course, and I still haven't heard anything about when this technology might become available.
