That might indeed not be fast enough. Especially if the EVF stays black during startup and you can't see where you're aiming.
Out of curiosity, I just checked with the D5: the delay between switching it on and the shutter clicking is basically zero. I assume it's not any different with a 1D-series camera.
Besides startup times, the biggest challenge for any manufacturer trying to bring a pro ML camera to market will be battery life. On events I took the D5 to (racing), I managed close to 5000 shots on a single battery. I don't see numbers close to that for any ML camera too soon.
Any EVF will be black during before and during startup.... That is mirrorless for you. Nothing a Z9 can improve there...
Indeed, the increase in power consumption with mirrorless cameras due to EVF (so: imaging sensor constantly using power, EVF/LCD, all that data computing constantly) will always make mirrorless less efficient than OVF DSLRs.
