At least, that's what this seems to imply (my emphasis):

"... a high-performance coordinated image stabilization (IS) system that integrates the camera's in-body IS with IS systems on attached RF lenses."

Hopefully it will at least be possible (and easy) to choose between lens IS or sensor IS. While I'm very pleased that the R5 has IBIS, if I can't use the excellent 5-stop optical IS in my 600 I'll be pretty miffed.

I would not read it that way. It may work better with RF lenses, but other manufacturers seem to make IBIS work just fine with legacy lenses too. Why could not Canon? To make everyone buy new overpriced lenses?
