If Sigma had a mirrorless camera (CSC) ... pros/cons

Camera manufacturers started targeting CSC (compact system cameras) towards serious photographers about one year ago and since then it seems like this area has gained a lot of momentum. And next year this topic will be become even more interesting (the rumoured release of a full frame CSC).

Now, apart from the lightness, compactness ... what pros and cons do you see in CSC? If Sigma released a CSC with super sharp lenses, would you sell your Sigma SLR camera and fully commit to CSC? Why/Why not?

Current cons like "Too much battery consumption" and "The electronic viewfinder is not good enough" will eventually be taken care of ... one day there might be a viewfinder which is really close to the quality of an optical one ... so I wonder, what other cons are there really for CSC? What really justifies keeping a SLR camera? Is the SLR camera a dying breed?
