The two M kits are top sellers on Amazon right now. I wonder if Canon is taking a loss, breaking even, or still making a small profit? If either of the latter, Canon would be wise (IMHO) to keep producing and selling the M at sale prices. Release more M lenses, release a mkII with the 70D sensor, address the minor complaints (focus peaking; more custom dials; etc.). Every person who buys at $299 is a potential lens sale or body upgrade down the road.
