Is it possible for Oly/Panasonic to create a FF mirrorless with 4/3 crop

I am dithering about buying a OM-D E-M1 or a Sony A7. I know that despite the body size being similar the lens sizes will be completely different. I am not sure but I also think that because of the E-mount imaging circle that it is difficult to create fast FE lenses. However the ability to mount NEX E-mount glass got me thinking.

Is it possible for the 4/3rds consortium to create a FF body that could accept either micro43 glass with a crop or "micro 4/3 mount glass" that covers a FF imaging circle. I guess I am dreaming of OM-D E-F1 that I could still use as a travel camera with micro43 glass while still having access to FF characteristics when at home.

I guess its not technically possible but I'd thought I'd ask.
