It's good to be riminded of the T90 - to me the biggest leap Canon ever made. AE1 sized body would be very cool!

I also, think that if you buy camera that means that you are choosing Canon or Nikon religion (sorry, but I do not accept other brands in cameras). Then camera producer can make really huge profits on lens sales. However, currently I see 2 problems with Canon:
1) They are not spending sufficient money on R&D comparing to other manufacturers (e.g. Sony) and also they are producing crippled cameras. In my opinion, all Canon marketing department should be fired. The latest example with Canon EOS 6D shows, that they did not meet high customer satisfactions as autofocus system is even worse as EOS 7D (which is 3 year old model!!!!). In my opinion it is much better to have less variety in cameras but produce super high quality products where cutting edge technology is applied. What we see now? GPS and Wifi included in very expensive camera when such features are standard in P&S cameras.
2) Canon's new lenses are extremely expensive, however, the third party manufacturers (e.g. Tamron, Sigma) started producing really high quality lenses for much lower price.
When I look how computer technology fastly evolves I am very dissatisfied with camera manufacturers response. The market is waiting for really high tech technologies but Canon updates camera line every 3 - 4 years. What would you say if Dell, Lenovo, Apple would update their technology on 3-4 year time span?
