How does the GH3 compromise stills? Seems to do quite well in that regard.

Note: Not prejudiced here - I have two OM-Ds, a DP2M, 2 GH2s, and a GH3. Whatever the shoot requirements/priorities, I grab what is necessary.

Not really.  It is extremely rare that I am drawn to a video.  Most of the time I can't wait for a video to be over because they are most often boring.  If you are shooting for personal reasons or are shooting professionally for someone else (i.e. a wedding) then video has its place but it only has it's place for a limited audience.  Stills, on the other hand, can really draw a large number of people in.
