From what I’ve read, in most of these systems the amount of ‘black space’ is much larger than the amount of actual surface LED material. As long as an interlocking mechanism that holds them close enough, tight enough, and in a perfect plane with each other can be developed it’s unlikely you’d see the divisions between tiles when it was on.
Of course, there is the potential for variations in brightness between tiles to make the stile structure more visible, but that could be solved through tight QC, or perhaps a camera/light-sensor based calibration system that normalizes all of the tiles to each other.
You could even have redundant LED trios within each tile with a fault detection system to automatically shut off bad or stuck pixels in favor of a neighboring backup. They could also use secondary pixels to do what should be an imperceptible pixel shift in order to prevent burn-in and extend the life of the display.
Another neat possibility would be separating the tiles from the controlling hardware, so you have a separate box that your HDMI cables plug into, which then plugs into the ‘master’ tile and controls everything via electrical leads in the tile connecting mechanism. When HDMI standards change and new features become available it would be as simple as just replacing the controller box without having to replace the whole display.
