To replace still, you need to address these:

Eventually cameras will only shoot video and you'll be pulling frames. You can do that right now with the GH3, as I do for editorial assignments, and with the GH4 the frames of video are printable and more importantly sellable.

(1) How do you extract frames?  Any softwares that people already have can do so easily?   Nikon 1 system has the so called "motion snapshot," a feature built into the camera that basically automates this process.  If GH4 does not have this, how likely it is for people to go through hundreds of frames just to find the one they want?  In other words, wouldn't it be easier to just fire off a few still shots as we are doing now?

(2) Videos are typically shot at slow shutter speeds to match the frame rate to create smooth motion bur.  How easy is it to find from many many frames the one that not only captures the movement but the subject is frozen and in sharp focus?  There is no point of shooting things that don't move with a high burst rate in the first place.
