Third party lenses for Canon RF mount?

How long will it take before the big Japanese third party lens manufaturers (Sigma, Tamron, Tokina) begin releasing lenses for the RF mount?

I've been happy with my Sigma EF-S lenses and would appreciate to see less expensive RF lenses available.

And can we expect them to work with functionality similar to Canon's own RF lenses?

Has licensing the RF mount protocol been on the table (officialy or unofficialy).

I understand that the RF mount is electronically and digitally more advanced, but it appears that on sensor DPAF should mitigate the problems with front- or back focusing seen on DSLRs?

The few third party lenses released in RF mount until now are rumoured to be EF-lenses electronically even if they optically are designed for a shorter flange distance. I know next to nothing about this, but would love to hear from someone more in the know.
