Clear telltale signs this is not a 7DM2 substitute or merger: no dual card slots, single processing unit, and back wheel-control à la the middle tier 6DM2, not the beefier, heavier, 7DM2, 5DM4 and of course 1DX models (see image below).
To be fair, you can't really fit a large back dial in a body that also has a tilty-flippy. But from the picture it appears that they have enlarged it a bit. They have moved the groove you use to flip open the display to the top right, and it appears the display is also more flush with the rest of the back surface, which improves the ergonomics as well.

4K 60p was not really realistic expectation in my opinion. Let's hope for a good quality 4K with dual pixel AF
It was predictable that it would be absent as soon as they said that it had a Digic 8 processor. If the R cameras can't do 4K60 then these will not be able to either.

So why is the note not mentioned for FHD? The same thing you describe would be the case for FHD video, but there is no * in the video for those with that explanation.
At a guess, 4K is a new feature so got an asterisk, FHD is same as before, so no asterisk

A snip from the 90D video. Does the statement "During viewfinder shooting (AF fixed/tracking)" mean that when looking through the optical viewfinder and shooting at the high rate of 10 fps the AF is fixed; as in you have no AF available when shooting stills at 10fps? Please tell me I am reading this incorrectly.

this means 10fps with either fixed or servo tracking focus when shooting through the viewfinder
it would be less than 10fps when shooting in Live View is my take on this.

It probably means that AF is fixed while shooting, in other words no dynamic AF, whatever point the camera was focused on initially stays the focus point.

Well, that wasn't exactly difficult call. But if the 4K really is just 30/25fps without 24fps option, I can already hear the angry screams...
Probably from the same people who say 60p is a must have. There is no satisfying them :)

So, if there's no 7DII upgrade and if this is the last of the SLRs, I would have to choose between getting one of these and never buying anything else, or selling most things I have an "upgrading" (actually downgrading) to mirrorless full-frame.

The 24-70/2.8IS for the R's interests me, as does the 24-240. But I'd have to have a body with around 60-100MP so in crop mode it would be similar to the 90D (83.2MP would be equal). And I'd have to resign myself to tolerating an EVF.

That's a lot of money to spend to get something I don't really want, but the alternative is being stuck with unsupported hardware lines (EF, EF-s and EOS SLRs).

If this is the case, then there is no way this is a 7DII replacement. Continuous tracking AF is a necessity for an action camera body IMO.

I was attracted by the 10fps, until I realized that I never even shoot in high-speed continuous on my 80D (7fps), hahaha.

It looks like a good camera, but probably not compelling for 80D owners, then again the 80D is not that old. I'll still be looking at FF mirrorless options, and keeping my 80D as a second body.

The 80D already has 7 fps with tracking, so 10 would not be such a big update.
The issue is the 90D may not have tracking, but instead fixed AF when shooting 10fps, so whatever your focus point/plane was when you started a burst, that is where the AF stays. The AF does not actively track the subject in between frames. For me this would be a no go.
