My prediction is one day we'll buy bodies with no sensor at all and the sensor will be built in to the lens. So for example, a super-wide lens will be fitted with a full frame sensor, a telephoto with a micro four thirds, a walk around with an APS-C, etc...

Ricoh already had that idea. I can only see it taking off on a larger scale when the cost of producing sensors falls considerably. You would also neeed to update all your lenses to get the latest sensor technology - instead of just updating the camera body. If the rest of the image processing is still contained in the body it also needs to to be designed to handle a bunch of different lens-sensor modules.
