Shimano hinted at the idea of a derailuer in a can like the Honda that had one. They made a patent for how it would be mounted to a frame. I believe Sram also bought a patent for a geared transmission.  I love the idea but it would radically change how frames are designed and engineered.  In my opinion derailuer s are like rim brakes vs disk brakes. Rim brakes work ask rodies. But disks are superior. A geared transmission is superior to a venerable light weight derailers. I'm shocked at how affordable these geared hubs are!  Bring it on, well the conversations at least.
