Rumour: could the 12.9-inch iPad Pro also go bezel-free?

Joe Rossignol, MacRumors:

The much-rumored 10.9-inch model will also be marginally thicker at 7.5mm, the same depth as the original iPad Air. The current 9.7-inch iPad Pro measures 6.1mm thick. The next 12.9-inch model will also be 0.3mm thicker at 7.2mm, while a rumored 7.9-inch iPad Pro will allegedly likely have the same dimensions as the iPad mini 4.

These iPad rumours get more interesting by the day. If the 10.9-inch iPad Pro is thicker to accommodate less bezel, could the same be true for the 12.9-inch version? I’d love to see the 12.9-inch iPad Pro get the same “micro-bezel” treatment as the rumoured 10.9-inch model, even if it means the device itself gets slightly thicker. Smaller bezels would also lead to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro having a smaller overall footprint.

If previous rumours hold true, perhaps Apple will drop the “Pro” from the entry-level 9.7-inch iPad, add Pencil support to the iPad mini, and make micro-bezels the distinguishing hardware feature of the iPad Pro line?
