Faster sensor that a stacked sensor provides if the image processor is powerful and fast enough will improve several things for a still photographer. One major improvement would be in AF, especially with C-AF and Tracking. Also, it will allow more computational photography to improve image quality. The sensor has the ability for each sensor to be used in phase detection AF and can also provide a depth map. Being an BSI with lower number if MP should give better DR and better low light.  It will be expensive. Just look at the price difference between the Sony A7 series and the A1. I will expect the Olympus "wow" camera to cost around $3,000, which is about half the price of a Sony A1.

This will leave a lot of room for a lower tier camera with a more tradition sensor and less powerful image processing power.
