The whole reason I moved into MFT was to reduce the size and weight of my gear.

There are a few very small lenses available such as the Lumix 12-32 and several pancake primes, but I think there is room for more very small lenses that need not be super fast. For example, I would like a good portrait lens of around 70 to 90 mm at say f/2.8 or f/3.5 that could be considerably smaller (and lighter) than the 75mm f/1.8.

Agreed. Small, compact, high quality. They don't need to be fast or especially cheap. I would mind a slower 25mm if they could make it smaller. I didn't bring my 75mm on my trip because of the weight. I would of loved a slower prime in the 75-100mm length.

On a different note, I know many people have mentioned a longer macro. I'd like a 25mm macro that I can use as a normal lens.
