Fourth, the mirror is needed for the camera to AF. If it's flipping up, the camera cannot AF all the way to when the shutter opens.

How is that different than all other SLR's?

Just take the mirror out and manual focus.

No, the camera can AF before the mirror flips, and resume doing so immediately after exposure (when the mirror returns to it's lower position).
