The one drawback is that the K adapter will be expensive, like $250 or more, because it will have to include a couple of substantial electric motors.

It turns out Sony has made such an adapter for E-mount, so we know roughly what it would cost.  Their original E to Alpha adapter had no motors and is probably overpriced at $140, but their second one includes not only a focus motor, but a translucent mirror phase detect system!, for $270 (current amazon price).
