I disagree; for mirrorless to grow they need to attract a new user. Canon see's that new user as existing DSLR users looking for a more compact travel option. If they bring out a serious mirrorless body that allows the use of existing glass, they have a huge market already there. Lots of small Canon (and Nikon) primes are readily available so that can carry them through till they do get glass development upto speed.

I'd say that a pretty safe gamble on both Nikon and Canons part. There is no possible way they are going to sit by and watch m43/Fuji/Sony take sales away from them.
