whether the infamous A9 banding would be a real problem.

Not in the vast majority of the pictures you will take

I’d pick a D5, Z9 will end up going the same route the Sony A7Ii and Z6 which I’m confident will leaving wanting better AF

Totally disagree. Nikon understands that the Z9 is the D6 successor and will make sure its AF is as good if not better than the D6 and the A9II.

Nikon will never make a MILC camera that beats its flagship DSLR

Nobody really cares if their camera is MILC or DSLR.  It's all about the picture.  There's absolutely no reason for Nikon to cripple MILC cameras to "protect" DSLR cameras.

If they can make a better MILC camera, they will.  If they can drop the mechanical SLR mechanism with all its expensive, finely engineered and delicate moving parts, they will.

The SLR was a solution for film cameras that has been almost entirely eliminated in digital cameras.  There's no reason not to suppose it is close to being totally eliminated.
