To be honest, I was surprised to see how much smaller the X-M1 is. Still have to deal with lens size, though...

It certainly is smaller but ability to put into one's pocket should be the last thing to come into consideration when dealing with a MILC.  Maybe if you're talking about compact P&S, but for a interchangeable system then no.  There's far too many trade offs with the obvious downgrade (losing superior build, viewfinder, etc).  Even more silly is the OP's suggestion of carrying a 35 1.4 in one pocket and the camera in another.
