Just out of curiosity, can anyone with the lens unscrew the foot and take a shot of the mating surfaces of the foot and the collar? I'm wondering how they interlock, etc.
More generally, it's a bit of a shame that the stock foot is ramped/curved in the back. A flat profile would allow the use of longer QR plates with antitwist "lips" to be oriented in either direction.
Getting a little offtopic, I would be surprised if Canon wanted to get into the QR plate/clamp world. It seems like further fragmentation that wouldn't be of much use to customers or to them, in a niche that they don't have much current interest in. I mean Canon doesn't even show their own tripods in their product photos: http://shop.usa.canon.com/shop/en/catalog/product-accessories/eos-digital-slr-camera-accessories/eos-tripods-other-accessories/eos-rain-cover-medium-erc-e4m
I'd much rather them work on sensor tech than on support products!
You don't need a plate with the anti swivel nubs. Looks like you can just add a second screw to the bottom plate
