"That brings us to APS-C and Micro Four Thirds. APS-C camera users, at least those whose cameras are of DSLR design, don't get much of a break. The cameras aren't that much smaller and lighter than Full Frame, and most people use full frame capable lenses, because to buy APS-C specific lenses locks you out of an eventual full-frame upgrade, and they aren't that much smaller and lighter in any event. Finally, few if any are of Pro grade."

This is what I've been lamenting for years. The K-mount only really makes competitive sense as a full-frame mount. That's true now more than ever.

Ricoh will be forced to make the move to a larger sensor and/or shorter registration distance sooner or later.

Are you saying Pentax should join the m4/3rds arena? Or, a GXR type mirror less?

May not be a bad move to add that particular line but Pentax should stay with the APS-C too.

Having just recently bought a m4/3rds Panasonic I see little difference in image quality between the Pentax and the Panasonic so far.  Of course there are other factors one chooses in favor of what type camera one needs. No one does WR better than Pentax.
