Will Canon make an R1-like Pro2?

I, for one, am really hoping that Canon comes out with a Pro2 with an APS-sized sensor. I would love a smaller, fixed lens camera with the advantages and image quality that a large APS sensor brings. (Too bad the R1 is such a beast.)

However...Canon has a wildly successfully DSLR line. A Pro2 or similar camera with an APS sensor would likely impact their DSLR sales. Does anyone have any idea if Canon will attempt to match or exceed Sony's R1 class camera, or not risk its DSLR sales and shy away? I know we'll likely here more as we get close to PMA, but any thought or info out there on this subject?
