They do not produce any sensors.

Yes. I know. They have a say in designing them, not building them.

It is up to Panny and Sony, although Oly can probably ask for such a development as it buys a lot of them....

Which is part of Oly's problem. They have to rely on two competitors to buy their sensors from. If either doesn't want to sell them their latest, greatest sensor, they don't have to.

Nikon's in the same dilemma. 5 or so years ago I read they were going to start building their own sensors. I read somewhere that they were going to make sensors for their P&Ss but not their DSLRs. I haven't kept up with where they stand with any of that.

'When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at
his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it.
Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two,
and I know it was not that blow that did it,
but all that had gone before.'
-- Jacob Riis (1849 - 1914)
