So, to put things together here's my whislist:

18-55 mm IS USM
55-250 mm IS USM II
300 or 400 mm IS USM 1:1 macro with 75-90 cm minimum focusing distance (where IS stands for Insect Stabilization as someone told in the forum :) )

All lenses must have the following features:

non-rotating front element
full time manual support (!)
no focus reset

Whoa!  400mm 1:1 macro?  Oh, OK, I get close with my Sigma 180 + a 2X extender.  But I would give this one some thought if the throw is long and smoothly damped.  And it weighs less than 6 lbs.  Heck, I'd buy anything with insect stabilization!
6D, 80D, Zeiss Milvus 100mm Makro, Sigma 180mm/2.8 macro, Canon 100mm macro, Canon 24mm/1.4, Sigma 35/1.4, Tokina 16-28, Canon 1.4X III TC, Canon 2X III TC.

And do not forget about the 10-18 mm IS USM with Full Time Manual support and no focus reset. So there would be a perfect travel kit of 10-18mm, 18-55mm and 55-250 mm lenses with the 60 mm and the 300mm/400mm IS USM macro. :)

TS-E 45mm
TS-E 90mm

My guess is the market is too small for Canon to be interested enough to put in the effort, but it sure would be nice!

My wishlist for wildlife...

EF 600mm f/4,0 IS USM Extender 1.4x integrated.

You have 2 lenses 600mm f/4,0 and 840mm f/5,6

You do not need a 800mm f/5,6 !!

If quality is the same like the
EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4x
I am happy.

Perhaps improve the quality of 24-105.  The range is convenient.  the extra lens on the long side is helpful

I agree. It's a really useful lens, but just needs a touch less chromatic aberration and a touch more sharpness. It's a shame that to upgrade IQ means downgrading focal range, e.g. the 24-70 (though I know it's often the case with zooms that the bigger the range, the more compromises).
You got your wish.

I can afford a Big White but a lighter, cheaper, hopefully more mobile 400-600 mm f5.6-6.3 IS would suit my current birding needs. Alternatively I will also take a 200-500 mm f5.6 IS with better AF than Tammy or Sigma.
6D | 7D | 7D2 | 10-22 | 16-35 f4 | 40 | 24-70 f4 | 70-200 IS II | Tamron 150-600

I would love to see something like a 24-200 f2.8 and f4L lenses available. I use the 24-70 f4 and have both the f4 and f2.8 70-200's. I shoot a fair amount of music in clubs and am always trapped between the two lenses and having to change back and forth. I actually love the EF-S 18-135 which I use on the 7D and 80D mostly for video. To me that 28-200 equivalent range is almost perfect. I just bought the 28-135 to try out but am not wild about it always slipping to the long end of the range when carrying it.

I do have many of the fast primes but good quality zooms get you spoiled real fast. For me, a 24-200 would be superb!
