All new Sigma lens have Optical Stabilisation disabled, why? crazy.

No, the 70-200mm HSM II OS comes with OS in Sony mount, as well as a few other random Sigma lenses.

As for the EVF/IS discussion: My OMD offers stabilization in EVF with on sensor IS, so clearly its possible, would love to see Sony add this feature to their SLTs.

That would require communication between the body and the lens. Since Sony uses SteadyShot as a market differentiator, it is not in their best interest to support such a protocol.
