The idea of a hydraulic derailleur is an interesting exercise, but hardly practical.  Where are you supposed to properly route those lines if you dont have internal routing?  In my opinion the only 'progressive' move away from a cabled derailleur is something wireless.  I cannot imagine a need for 13 gears ever.  I dont use the entire range on my 11-speed cassette.  How about a cassette that doesnt have an 8t gear jump at the upper end?  Going from 52t to 44t is a big drop in gearing.  Id rather have smaller increments at the upper end (how about 52-47-42 or 52-46-40) that will help me stay in an efficient climbing gear.  Get rid of the 10t at the bottom and make the gearing more even at the top.
