The wish list covers what the D850 already does. Why mirrorless then? In my view the beauty of a mirrorless camera is its small size, quiet operation and small prime lenses. I would prefer a Leica-like body because the viewfinder is more practical on the corner so that you won't press your nose against the body.
SLR lenses will need an adapter to compensate for the mirror box' depth and it would make the outfit large. Nevertheless the Sigma adapter on the Sony a7 works well for Canon lenses.
Wishlist: rangefinder-style body, small (pancake) primes, full frame (or larger) sensor, 50 or more MP, fast, dual card writing. I do not care about videos. I would make video and optional version body. Certainly tilting screen. Well thought through ergonomics so that subsequent models don't need to look and feel different (like the SONY a7RII and III -annoying).

On article Hasselblad responds to Lunar criticisms (613 comments in total)
In reply to:

Trued1: Original Hasselblad was designed by the same Swedish guy Sixten Sason who also designed the first Saab car models 92-93-96-99. His colleague Björn Envall ex. Saab design boss should have designed this camera. I bet this is a 100% italian job NOT Swedish. Looks odd to say the least.

No, this can not be Italian. They produce a lot of Euro-trash besides the world's most elegant products but this does not look and smell like Italian. The organic shape resembles Japanese cars. I see Asian influence with materials Hermes would apply. They may have commissioned a Japanese artist who is now in hiding.

The Pontiac Aztek of the cameras!
