The photos displayed were from the game Algeria - Germany with partially stronger rain. So this might be the (boring) explanation of these "hidden cameras" ...

We shouldn't forget that the EOS M was "an experiment", as their CEO said. There are no real rumors about the long-awaited M3. I do still believe that Canon will go mirrorless with their 'normal' SLR's (I expect the 7DII to be the first one -> hybrid VF, stunning video functions, many autofocus points etc.) and they will have an EF mount, otherwise they would kill themselves after building up a lens system for, I don't know, 40 years?! I wouldn't bet on the M system.
I will try to make an approach, as far as I can handle your question:
IS (Canon) is a moving optical element inside the lens.
To work properly it has to move fast and accurate. To be fast it has to be of low weight.
Fast apertures need a larger image circle over the whole optics compared to narrow apertures.
Therefore the optical elements of the IS should be larger as well. This leads to higher weight which causes loss of speed and higher energy consumption and also to higher prices because of the more expensive optics.
So with IS Canon always compromises between functionality of the IS and useful max. aperture.
This is my conclusion. Maybe someone else can do better.
Superteles with IS have large elements.
Weight and energy consumption should therefore be even greater, per your explanation.
Does the larger housing of the superteles provide more space for the mechanism that moves the elements?
We’re told the top plate has a noticeably bigger bump around the viewfinder than the current EOS 7D.A hybrid viewfinder perhaps? Or maybe the return of eye controlled autofocus?
Am I being silly or are there bigger sample images available yet?
Yes, So many People come to as me about this fantastic Tiny EOS-M with a big Lens
Take your pick of currently available systems from Fujifilm, Sony, Olympus, Canon or Nikon. Loads of MILCs to choose from. Why wait for some mythical M3 that will prob never see a US or Europe release?
The current gear available today is more than good enough. The only limitation is the photographer.
Curious to see what everyone else's thoughts are on this new Sony and where you think Canon falls within the competition.
