If so, does it make sense for Ricoh/Pentax to expend lots of development resource to help you do something you didn't need to do?

You didn't provide an answer to that question that would convince Ricoh/Pentax!

Ricoh is a business, answerable to its shareholders.

Its developments need to be justified according to their return on investment.

Ricoh is not a "non-profit", nor a charity.

Ricoh should invest in new products that will cause more people to spend money with them, or cause individual people to spend more money with them.

They shouldn't divert their scarce development resources towards low margin products that will result in little or no subsequent revenues.

I believe their future flagship cameras (FF or APS-C) should be aimed high, not low. And should appeal to people who will accompany their purchases of such cameras with new high quality lenses (and other accessories).
