Weather sealed Fuji (X-T1??) wishlist

Just for fun what would people want / expect from Fuji weather sealed body (rumoured end Jan announcement). These are my views:

Weather sealing: As well as expected dust /moisture/vibration/impact protection I think it should protect sensor by closing shutter (or secondary shutter) when camera is off or lens is being removed.
AF: faster, more PDAF points with lower EV rating and cross type.  Tracking AF also needed for sports/action/wildlife but that maybe too much initially for Fuji.

EVF: if rumours are true its going to get a much bigger / faster refresh rate EVF. I was OK with X-E2 refresh rate but larger EVF would be welcome. Hope its got long eye relief so its good for spectacle wearers like myself.

size : Accept it will be a little tale due to bigger EVF. If it is also a little wider then thats OK with me as I find X-E2 a little too small (I find it about perfect with leather half case fitted which also improves protection.

sensor resolution:  a 24mp xtrans would be great but not essential, but only if processor speed could keep responsiveness faster than X-E2.
Buffer: Bigger than X-E2, by long way.

image review: should be able to zoom in 100% when only storing RAW file, that would help with write speed/buffer too.
sensor Iso: Base ISO 100 please. Firstly, it would help when using fast primes in daylight. Secondly, if Fuji can squeeze moor Dynamic range out that would be good.

Controls: I would make shutter dial a little bigger so I can move with forefinger whilst looking through EVF (like my old Nikon FM2) and also add 1/8000 shutter.
But what goes on left hand top plate?  I would add rotary knob for single shot, Cl, Ch, HDR (or bracket), self timer, video. I am not sure adding an ISO dial is a step forward as I can change iso settings quickly using function button next to shutter release without taking hands off camera/eye from viewfinder.  But fuji should not make mistakes of Nikon and only have manual ISO dial. settings should be: L(50) A1, A2, A3, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600, 3200, 6400, 12800, 25600.
Colour focus peaking please & and ability to set option on Q menu/custom setting.  I would really like to try Black/white film mode with colour FP. And shoot RAW only so still get colour photo when required.
