Well in my book yes it does and not a derogatory phrase in sightRebels / xxD and EF-S lenses will not "transition" to R mount. they are being *replaced* by EOS-M bodies and EF-M lenses.
i dont think there will ever be Canon APS-C cameras with EOS R mount.
Canon has evidently decided to go with 2 mounts, 2 systems, each perfectly well chosen for the respective image circle:
APS -C = EOS M with EF-M lenses
FF = EOS R with RF lenses
"EOS 7D category" will be replaced by
1. higher-end/faster EOS M top models (APS-C) and even more so by
2. action-capable, hi-rez, well-croppable EOS R bodies )with FF sensor). Canon is just not yet able to fully deliver it (see interviews with EOS R team - sensors (readout speed) and DIGIC are not there yet. They need another generation jump.
PS. hope this qualifies as a "carefully considered" contribution.
Taking up your second point would a way round this as a filler be to offer 1.6 crop mode on FF to gain FPS and buffer. No idea what the real word AF performance is like on the current R but I'd guess that the central area (crop areas) will be more accurate than at FF edge ?
