OH YES! we simply must remove the mirror so we can get 10,000fps at 24K video with a medium format sensor, global shutter, exposure simulation and automatic tone mapping 50 strop HDR with a carbon fiber grips and tungsten body with a AF-S 18-500mm f/0.95G ED ASPH [IF] N ED VR lense!

//end satire.

I get so tired of hearing people expecting the next camera to be released from a major manufacturer to be an attempt to get in on the mirrorless circus cart.

In any case a vast majority of the Nikkor lenses in production are designed for an SLR, do you honestly expect Nikon to just dump them all and start making lenses for mirrorless cameras?

Things like this take time, technology has to earn its place in the market, especially amongst professionals.

When you really look at it the advantages of mirrorless cameras are only marginal - at best compared to a traditional SLR.  The day may come where a mirrorless camera completely and utterly oustrips a SLR in all aspects of performance - but we all know that day is a long way off.
