If Fuji came out with a 300mm f/4 (with a focus limiter/quad linear motor), it will create a lot of temptation for wildlife photographers to switch systems.

Fuji already has the Teleconverters.

Not even remotely long enough, 500 5.6 possibly, 200-600 is ideal, Sony probably got it spot on.

I wouldn't be so quick to discount the versatility of a 300mm on an APS-C body.

Below are some examples of a 300mm on a Full Frame Sensor.

The Fuji XT2, XH1, XT3 all have greater pixel density than the D850 has at 1.5x crop.
You currently own the 100-400. Where do you feel it is falling short? In my opinion, it's an incredible lens and in comparison to the Nikon 200-500, its a better lens.

I agree, I want a 300 f/4 (obviously that takes the TCs).  My Nikon 300 f/4 pf on my d500 is by far my most used combo and plenty long enough for most wildlife.  If I wanted to carry around 7 pound lens (such as a 500 f/5.6 would likely be) that cost 10K, I'd just stick with Nikon.
