Ripping Pentax for IBIS on narrow mount FF

Just wanted to share and get your thoughts. I was reading an article on PetaPixel about why this photog thinks Sony mirrorless is a dumb fad, when I noticed he compared Sony's IBIS with Pentax. This quote I found particularly distressing, "It seems both Sony and Pentax are adding IBIS to excessively narrow mounts as a marketing ploy, with flagrant disregard towards optical fundamentals."
IDK if this is true or not. The reviews for the K-1 that I've read have made no mention of this.
I suggest reading the article. Much of it seems rooted in logic.

Why Sony's Full Frame Pro Mirrorless Was a Fatal Mistake
