If they did make it APS-H, It would have a APS-C crop mode if the mirror would clear EF-s lenses. Then it makes complete sense as you'll get alittle more coverage with EF lenses but not costing FF and crop mode when you need it. Win-Win.
I wonder if they can still do EF-s with APS-H. None of Canon's previous APS-H bodies were compatible with EF-s. To continue using EF lenses, the registration distance would have to be the same, and since no APS-H body to date was short-back compatible, I am willing to bet the mirror is too large. Maybe Canon could create some kind of folding mirror assembly to gain the necessary clearance...but that sounds like needless complexity, when there are a few good EF-s lenses for what they are, but none that compare to the IQ of a proper L-series lens.
I think the image circle of an EF-s lens is a bigger (unsolvable) problem the the miror size ...
