Besides, "integration via a good adapter" is good enough only for some people, and only if changing mounts was already decided. I'm unwilling to go that route and lose things I appreciate (and are deemed irrelevant by a small but vocal minority).

With "good adapter" I mean an adapter that preserves full KAF2 mount for the K-mount lenses. Not some kind of third party thing with limited functionality.

Even an OEM adapter is not guaranteed to keep full functionality; but I was talking about that theoretical full-functionality low cost adapter people are using to "prove" their idea should be accepted by everyone. Even with that, things will be lost (perhaps the most important being the optical viewfinder and 2-way compatibility).
