Would a K-3 mirror less and one good zoom save Pentax?

Recently I read some threads how Pentax is the only manufacturer to not have a mirrorless system and how this spells sure doom for the brand.

But if the 43 mount was shortened into the M43 mount by cutting off the mirror box then Pentax ought to be able to do the same. And most people would be happy with a good universal zoom.

What do you think, could a compact K-3 ML with a modern Sony OSPDAF sensor (even if only 24mp) and an updated HSM 16-85 with more exotic glass and full weatherproofing be all that is needed to save the brand and build a customer base around ergonomics and weather proofing and then provide the revenue to do the same to the FF line?

And then allow Pentax to develop more lenses to stay competitive.

Or are we all dooooooooomed?
