Quite frankly, I couldn't care less about tracking or C-AF.

I have in the past taken wildlife photographs and I have never used C-AF, though owning four thirds dSLRs may at least have contributed to that.
I do care, as mentioned above, that S-AF does not hunt and and possibly damage my four thirds lenses as the focus moves back and forth.

So you are one of the few 4/3 lens owners who could not keep 4/3 system going. Neither you alone can this camera going.

I also care about the higher level of weather sealing this camera should have

Higher than what, E-M5, GH3, k-30/k-50/K-5 are already weather-sealed at much more reasonable prices, 3 times lower in the case of k-30.

and the much larger and better quality viewfinder.

Many cameras have it already. Not that much larger is promised or rumored, only higher resolution.

Finally, as I don't have a grip for my E-M5, I'm hopeful that my four thirds lenses will handle better on this camera.

Tracking and C-AF will be important for some people but I suspect it will be a fairly small percentage of the people that will buy it.

If not, why spend $1,500? There are MUCH cheaper alternatives.
