It's always good to wish, but...

It is all impossible until someone does it. I think Fuji can get the package smaller if they go fixed lens.

Wish all you want. The chances of this rather unrealistic request happening fall somewhere between slim and none IMHO. You seem to be ignoring the the laws of physics and the fact that MF cameras aren't larger because designers are lazy or think their customers just want a larger camera. They're that size because they need to be to deal with the sensor size, optical path, etc. A fixed vs. interchangeable lens might help make such a camera a bit smaller, but nowhere near what you're looking for.

But, keeping an open mind here, perhaps you can share with us the list of cameras out there with MF sensors that meet (or come close to) your criteria. Clearly if other manufacturers can do it, then Fujifilm could as well. If you find that such a camera doesn't exist, then perhaps consider the possibility that there are physical reasons why it's hasn't been (and likely can't be) done.  Simply wishing for something, unfortunately, doesn't make it realistic or doable.
