Floorball suffers from the same problem to some extent, but it is arguably much closer to becoming an Olympic sport due to the extreme growth it is experiencing.

Edit 2: I also think the Paralympics should be merged with the regular Olympics (the events would stay separate of course, but they would happen at the same time)
That is not a possibility due to logistical reasons. It just wouldn't be possible to host all those events at the same venues and building additional venues is not financially viable.
