I think it will in the low end--D5000/D3000 territory.

Some of the makers might play around with EVF's but you won't gain a size advantage here, in fact a lot of people feel the A55/A35 were too small and they are not comfortable cameras to hold

That might just be because Sony didn't design them well. Anyway I think the shorter registration distance eases some constraints on lens design--at least for wide angle or large zoom range. And the EVF has cost and feature advantages and I think people will prefer them in general in the low end. For the high end, I don't know. Depends on how good EVF's get.

DSLR's are not for everyone, but you won't make every camera small by wishing it so.

I agree, but the DSLR is a solution, not a market. You put up with its problems because you have to in order to get a level of performance. I think the 1-system is a different solution that meets the performance goals for a huge section of the market.
