Probability of a definite article becoming a topicaliser?

Something John said in the article replacement thread put an odd thought
in my head. Here goes:

Say we have a language, and that language manages to (mostly) lose its
definite article. How probable is it that the remainents of the definite
article could become a topicaliser particle? Or more to the point, is
there any real language out there where this happened?
