No high megapixel Canon because CR2 is based on PCD?

It seems to me that the CR2 file and Kodak Photo CD file design is very similar.

The Kodak Photo CD supported a maximum resolution of ~25 megapixels.

If the basic design concept of the CR2 file is based on the Kodak Photo CD, could Canon be limited to 25 megapixels?
