I see another possibility

I think it is already clear where it is or probably culd go to

Em1.3 = D500 equivalent
Em1X = D5 equivalent
Em5.3 = D7500 equivalent.

In this scenario high performance is hampered by processing power if you add 32 MP pixel of data in the mix. So EM1.3 which will remain the D500 equivalent would need more processing power than the EM1X to achieve the same speeds it reaches now!

IF you make the Em1.2 no longer a sports camera for enthusiast it wil become an EM5.3 essentially.

So in this view Em5.3, IF there is going to be a 32 MP camera in a year or so, will have it. People won't expect 20 FPS here, nor other extremely demanding options. 6-8 FPS will do with C-AF. Etc. Also it is not unlikely that the IQ at higher ISO will suffer a little or won't be as good. And if it is as good as current 20 MP sensor than the 20 MP based on the newer tech will be better and still be used in the EM1.3 for instance.
