I wonder whether an interchangeable mount is possible - a kind of modular mounting system that can be swapped out for a different mount without the use of fussy mechanical ebay adaptors?

Yes, its possible.

But ... I have a hard time seing what good that would do Sigma.

I think Pentax shall do a mirrorless camera that is compatible with K-mount via such a modular mount.

In a way, they have already done that. My Pentax Q can use K mount lenses via the Pentax K to Q adapter. In fact, that's why I bought the Q so I could connect it to a DA 55-300 and shoot at nearly 1700 mm at F/5.8..

Lin, you do know that your not actually getting 1700mm focal length and that all your actually getting is the field of view equivalent of a 1700mm lens?  Crop factor does not increase magnification, you simply get a narrower FOV for a given focal length lens.
