Why the need for the bulky alpha adapter?

Is there a reason the alpha adaptor is so bulky? Any chance that new NEX models will allow alpha lenses to be connected directly (or maybe using a small step-up ring)? I really wonder why the adaptor is so bulky, because I wouldn't mind buying a couple alpha lenses for my NEX6 if I can at least keep the portability somehow in check.
