Actually that is not true at all

The Canon product line is classified in a hierarchy indicated by the number of digits:

grab-and-go slrs 3 digit (300, 350, 400 now 450)
midrange / paraprofessional two digit (10, 20, 30 now 40)
single digit professional (1D, 3, 5D, etc.)

ergo, they are already using '4,' (viz. 400, 450 and 40D) but not with a professional equivalent.

The reference below to an unlucky number to the Chinese might have something to do with that, as there is a 5D but no 500 or 50.

But still....
