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.

Of course.

For this to be interesting at all, Pentax has to take the adapter very seriously. It has to be an integrated part of the DSLR/mirrorless combined system.

Which probably will make the adapter expensive. Which, of course, might jeopardise the whole idea.

The price is just what I'd have to pay in order to lose things that I want.
