You've got it backwards

Let's assume the best case scenario, that Canon's new dual pixel AF system works just as well in live view as it does with the mirror down. Great, so why keep the mirror and OVF at all?

Zero lag, zero battery use, near-infinite dynamic range, near-infinite color gamut, better resolution.

This fall's newest generation of EVFs are surely going to drive the lastnail in the OVF coffin and turn it into a complete anacrhonism, making the 70D technologically obsolete just a few months in.

Not unless they suddenly improve by an order of magnitude or two.

It has been well documented that OVFs are on the verge of going the way of film, useful only for nostalgia and people who don't care about utility and functionality.

You've got that backwards...I like my OVFs over my EVFs because of utility and functionality.
