Your requirements for sub-24-hour response times are challenging!
Yes, it's possible. I doubt it would be easily achieved in sizes below 60" because we'd be back to pretty small cells. The 60" is 2x the size of a 42", where 1080 can be achieved... So you'd have to halve the cell sizes to pull that off.
I doubt you'll ever see it, however, unless they start to mass produce at 85" or larger.
As for 4k itself, seeing is believing. Sharp showed 1080i source on their 4k prototypes and it looked amazing. They did have their I-cubed processor doing the upscaling, which I'm sure is a lot of why it looked amazing, but clearly it looked amazing.
Anyway, I suspect plasma R&D will begin to wind down over the next 5 years, not accelerate. To that end, I doubt you're going to see plasma join the 4K parade, except perhaps in jumbo sizes.
