That's not what some among the Micro Four Thirds community have believed

I'm going to go categorically with the belief that Leica will probably never build a Micro Four Thirds Camera. I won't go as far as some do in saying Panasonic may leave the Micro Four Thirds consortium.

I don't know why they would believe that. Leica, in the person of Daniel Stephan, has repeatedly and emphatically stated they will not make a system camera with a smaller than APS-C sensor, because they believe (rightly or wrongly) a smaller sensor cannot reach sufficient levels of image quality (keep in mind this is the same company that invented autofocus, decided it could not reach sufficient levels of IQ, and sold the patents to Honeywell).

Imagining the mini-M would be m43 smacks of wishful thinking.
