Size, in some cases. The EF-S 18-55 vs the EF 17-40, for example.Other than cost, I never saw the point of APS-C lenses. The non-L ff lenses seem very inexpensive to me. I think you are right.
Again, I think it comes down to the market Canon is targeting. If they release an APS-C RF body intended to supplant the Rebel/xxxD DSLRs, then I expect they’d release a some small image circle lenses as well, to make them cheap. If they are aiming at the xxD/7D market segment, probably just a cheap small image circle kit lens. Or none at all, and that’s the purpose of the rumored RF 18-45mm f/4-5.6, which in that case I’d expect to be light on build quality and requiring significant digital correction.
