an other sexy idea would be a super lightweight and compact 100-400 DO L - let's say below 1.3 kg and optically superb - such a lens would find a huge number of interested guys

That's a pretty exotic idea. I guess it would be interesting for those who want a lot of reach in a small and lightweight package. Looking at the 70-300 DO though I don't know if it would be a success.

Plus, the patents for a new 100-400L suggest a similar design to the current one, with possibly a ring zoom instead of push/pull.

sure - looking at the 70-300rds is a bit boring - but looking at the 400 f/4.0 DO is much more appealing - we've seen lots of DO patents  lately - if Canon is looking for a differentiating factor this could be one option

that said - this idea is rather unrealistic for the time being.
