That photo sure leaves the impression they could have gone with the next size up in sensors (1/1.7"?).

They can't now. The lenses are made for 1/2.3" sensor.

You can't put a larger sensor now once the lenses have been specified to work with smaller sensor. If they do put a larger sensor, they will have to start over from scratch with new lenses.

The lens image circle is apparently larger than necessary in order to cover the movement of the sensor IS.

Which means it should cover a 1/1.7" sensor without IS, so it'd be a trade-off.
