BSI doesn't seem to be taking the world by storm.
In sensors with pixels approaching 1 micron, BSI are taking the world by storm and the effect is quite large.

In sensors with 2+ micron pixels BSI have much less effect and is quite expensive, thats why the adoption is slow on DSLR sensors.

Pentax K-1 has something better than a BSI sensor, it has a back side illuminated LCD.

Maybe somebody with dyslexia saw IBIS and came up with BSI? Either that or IFBS (I'm Full of BS).
