Nothing wrong with the mechanics of what you are suggesting but I reckon it would infuriate existing X-Pro1 and X-E1 owners if the "s" versions were to suddenly become available.

I fear we are back to the days of film camera development - when Japanese companies introduced model improvements at whim (or so it appeared to Western markets) and created a 'new' improved version - albeit with the older one still on sale at slightly reduced price.

I'm lead to believe (not being Japanese myself) that home consumers value 'new' over old products - even on a timescale of a few months - and it is considered 'normal' practise ... i.e. Japanese consumers do not feel outraged that last week's camera is outdated - they simply make plans to buy the new version ... or even a totally different brand/model if it offers better features.
