Unfortunately a LH camera would not be incremental to Canon, rather it would cannibalize sales from their existing line. Hence they would need to mark it up sufficiently to cover design and production cost as well as make the same margin as the RH camera.
It will be incremental, as other customers from Nikon, Pentax, etc...maybe interested, left-hand people can adapt to using right hand tools, but probably you'll find more comfortable with a natively designed left-hand camera...so it will be a potential new market...
What do you think the incremental sales would be? If there was a market, don't you think that someone (Nikon, Oly, Sony, Pentax, ...) would have addressed it by now?
IMO this would split the market but not provide any new volume, only new cost.
