Contrast detection with a secondary sensor was first introduced by Canon T80 in 1986. I'm not sure if that would help much. Alignment problems would make this again prone to misfocus. Would be better to have CDAF as a final step on the main sensor.

Pentax could really deliver something useful here by offering an automatic AF-calibration (comparing the image-sensor-AF-result to the PD-sensor-AF-result, ideally for different focal lengths and distances).

Nikon already has something similar in D850.
