Does SLT design offer any advantage over Sony's on-sensor PDAF?

The latest Sony E-mount cameras have very fast AF without using a separate AF module (like SLR and DSLR cameras). Wouldn't using the same technology be sufficient for new A-mount bodies?

I'd be happy if my A77 MkII had no mirror in the way, no front-focus/back-focus issues and the AF performance of current E-mount cameras. I don't expect optimum performance with old Minolta lenses, but more recent Sony lenses I'd assume should be quite fast. For sure the ergonomics and a support for screw-driver AF would make such a camera more attractive for use with A-mount lenses than E-mount cameras with an adapter like the LA-EA3.
