The E-M5 is currently the most complete expression of mirrorless advantages:
  • small, light, rugged weathersealed alloy body

I don't want a camera with a smaller body. That is not an advantage for me.

  • high quality EVF that can show all settings, level and histogram or simply a grid at your option

But it will not be the same as a TTL OVF and good luck defeating the laws of physics making it so.

Once mirrorless improves focus tracking to solve the one remaining downside, there will be no rational reason left for lugging about oversized DSLR bodies and lenses, only resistance to change.

Ah, another mirrorless user (don't know but I think it's a safe bet) explaining why a camera that works well for him is going to be good enough for everyone else.

Enjoy what you have as I do, but let's not start planning any funerals.
