On the Canon rumors site there is a mention of sigma announcing a mirror less system. That makes a lot more sense than a new sensor. It would be a small step to replace the DPX with a mirror-less camera system.

Rather than 'replacing' one style camera with another, I'd love to see Sigma offering several different type bodies, keep DSLR, DPxMerrill, and then something new and innovative. I agree with the comment that the SD1Merrill isn't an 'entry level' DSLR... in my opinion it's a shame they're discontinuing the SD15, it's a nice DSLR. Perhaps they can do an update body with its older sensor if they still have them in stock.

I don't know the complications of keeping several lines of cameras active, but I'd see it as an advantage to Sigma. Plus they need to push online sales more. They're just not going to be carried in many stores around the world, but this is the trend with many lines of merchandise.
