Should/will Sony release a larger A7xxx body?

It appears that the new Nikon mirrorless camera (and likely the Canon) will be larger than the A7 line.

I can imagine they are doing this:

1) For DSLR uses who want similar ergonomics to their DSLRs (even though they may not have touched a mirrorless camera)

2) To reduce noise in long exposure shots created by the smaller body of A7 cameras finding it more difficult to lose heat  (please correct me if I'm wrong, here).

3) To improve weather sealing (as per point 2 - is the weather sealing of A7 bodies not up to the level of some DSLRs due to the need to remove heat?).

Apparently Sony has a response to the new bodies coming out - I wonder if it is a new, Pro body that is larger with better sealing and less noise.
