This answers my question:
However, I had in mind not detachable lens+mount+sensor.

Maybe it is easier to build detachable screen, while rest of the camera stays the same (except wi-fi module should be added). Touch screen (like on NEX-5N or newer) should be equipped with one wi-fi module to, as well as battery inside, and thats about it. Of course, interface should be design to command the camera from the screen.

Sony doesn't allow for tethered shooting with NEX, which is really a bad decision on Sony's part. However, a wireless display by itself is available using HDMI:

I don't know how well that works, but it shouldn't be too hard to make it work well.
