The real issue that CURRENT Sony A-mount users only get 2010 level support for transitioning to FE mount.

These two statements are incongruent. Why is Sony obligated to ensure cross compatibility on a 30 year old lens mount? I don't think there's any A mount lens that's not available in some FE version at this point. And there are plenty of FE lenses that don't exist in A mount. A mount users have 3 pretty straightforward choices.... stay with A mount, deal with the LA-EA4, or move to FE mount. It's not in Sony's interest to sell $400 adapters instead of $2000+ lenses.
