Is Olympus Going to Have a New MFT Mount

Doing the Robert's Camera and Olympus Rep did their video a few weeks ago Robert's Camera guy joked about a new mount.  At the time I didn't pay much attention to this.  After reading about the new Canon R mount and the reasons for more pins.   The reasons for more data pins in the lens mount is to increath the communicstion bandwidth between the lens and camera to improve AF snd stabilization. It got me thinking could Olympus add more data pins to the MFT mount for the camera coming next year.  The rumor ultra telephoto zoom will have this new mount with the extra data pins.  The new mount will be intelligent enough to know if the camera and lens have this mount and use the extra data bandwidth otherwise it will use the regular data pins with reduce performance.   Anyhow. just an idea.
