I strongly suspect any crop sensor R body will (initially at least) be a 7DII equivalent / upgrade, with the intention of enticing 7D users into the RF mount. My impression is that typical 7D-series users would spend most of their time on FF (EF) mounted lenses anyway, and so there would be little immediate need for an RF-s mount. If (and a big if) Canon eventually wanted to move out of the lower level APS-C bodies (and what an 'if' it would be to give up the Rebels?!), then there might need to be some native RF-mount lenses to at least go into kits. But even that is assuming there was a desire for smaller / lighter lenses, and the clear intention seems to be that the M series represents the 'small and light' ML series.
