Sony inside: will Sony reduce to an OEM company

Sony is undeniably taking the lead in sensor technology used in commercial cameras, tempting other camera factories to buy and use them in their products, including Nikon and purportedly Olympus, much like an "Intel inside" enterprise.

Do you think Sony is/will be reduced to mainly a sensor supplier in the first place and camera maker in the second place (besides its traditional sector in AV)? If so, is the lens lineup gap the main reason, especially on the part of the professional users' opinions?

(Not a troll, thought I might buy into Nikon because of the excellent sensor and the good arsenal of lenses).
