Given the advent of cameras like the Sony A7 II, Olympus EM1 etc, isn't it time to bin redundant terminology and categorisations like DSLR and Mirrorless. The only part of DSLR that is useful for differentiating is the R for Reflex, and mirrorless systems cover pretty much all formats now. Lumping the Sony A7 with the Nikon 1, rather than other FF cameras makes little sense to me.
Categories based on format and target market (Entry level up to Pro), with type of VF relegated to a sub-category would surely be more relevant.
