I don't quite see why Canon would ditch their EOS mount either.
Most of their "Rebel" line of DSLR cameras are barely bigger than most
of the 4/3 DSLR cameras from Olympus, Panasonic and Leica.
Perhaps they (Canon) might produce an EVIL EOS camera rock-bottom priced
entry-level to the EOS system, but their current entry level DSLR camera

Some camera manufacturers which have nothing (or little) to lose are
Ricoh and Samsung, but they've already shown their hand with the GXR
