Is higher OVF magnification possible?

Perhaps what they are referring to, is that with magnification, the difference between the world seen through the viewfinder and with the naked eye is small enough that you can comfortably keep your right eye open. I don't think it's so much about using your right eye for anything more than peripheral vision than it is comfort. This won't work at all if you shoot with your right eye.
The difference, even in high magnification mode, is quite large. I feel quite uncomfortable with both eyes open. Until now, 100% has been the benchmark and 80% the iffy line that can be crossed for large OVFs in rangefinder cameras. The X-Pro, again, looks the part, but isn't the part. It covers everything - perhaps too much as it is aimed at a market that doesn't understand rangefinder cameras.
If they offered a couple different models, it would be perfect.
