The cost of the entry level DSLRs and MILCs (e.g., SL3/Kiss X10 and M50 MkII/Kiss M2) are essentially the same (within a few 10’s of dollars and different ones are slightly cheaper in different markets, so no real difference there).Pretty cure cost of entry and low price ef glass plays a huge role in that. A rebel with access to old cheap EF lenses is a lot cheaper.
Most APS-C body sales are 1- and 2-lens kits, and given the 1.4:1 lens:body market ratio, most consumers never buy another lens, so ‘old, cheap EF lenses aren’t a factor, and regardless EF-M lenses are similarly-priced with EF-S counterparts.
The reality is that a large swath of the market still prefers DSLRs over MILCs. Do you honestly think it’s a good idea to ‘slowly kill off’ camera lines that comprise 45% of the ILC market?
