My money is on a prime longer than 50mm, probably quite close focusing so it can sort of be used as a Macro.

Any other thoughts?

Nothing I have seen is telling me they're doing anything beyond the two lenses they are selling now.

With the DP3 Merrill announced, I think we can definitely expect a 50mm, an FL that would work nicely on both systems. You have to question why the DP3 has a 50mm lens and not a 56mm one, which would be a more typical "portrait" FL for the APS-C sensor in the DP3. The only answers are either they are reusing an existing optical formula, not likely because their existing 50mm designs are for big register distances, or that turning the DP3 lens into a Digital Neo lens was part of the plan from the start.

Beyond this 3rd lens is more of an unknown quantity.
