That's exactly right. I bought the 300D (the first of the xxxD models). It was under $2000 (a bargin in the early days of consumer dSLRs); it's sensor was identical to the 10D except that some of the firmware features were crippled. Canon's philosophy was to offer a number of camera's at different price points to appeal to anyones budget. Fuji is doing the same thing except that nothing is "crippled" or left out of the firmware of the budget models compared to the higher end models.

Do you think in-camera panorama stitching, available on the X-P1 and X-E1, but not on the X-M1 and X-A1, was intentionally removed to "cripple" the low-end models?

This is not a crippled firmware issue but most likeky a hardware issue. Fuji left out some stuff to make the camera smaller.
