Here you are mistaken, the 7D system is more capable still...

We don't know that for certain, and if there is a difference, then we don't know to what degree and how much difference that makes out in the real world.  As the years go by, technology shifts downstream, meaning that yesteryear's 7D technology and performance finds its way into today's 70D.  I haven't seen anything indicating that a 7D's circa-2009 19-point cross-type AF system is still going to be better than a 70D's circa 2013 19-point cross-type AF system.  Sure, a 7D MKII's AF system will probably be better than the 70D's (as it should be), but I don't think it's so far-fetched to think that a 2013 70D now has an AF system on par with a 2009 7D.
