Agree that G100 numbering don't make sense from Existing lineup. Panasonic hasn't been selling well aside for the poplar G9. The entire lineup is overused for an overhaul.

Gh5/6/S will stay

G9 is a best seller for Panasonic will stay

everything else I think is subject to consolidation or out right elimination. G95, while new, compare poorly against Sony A6400, Fuji XT, Canon M6ii, so I can't rule out it might get the AX

I also think there is too many models. Sony APS-C has just 3: Top A6600, Middle A6400, A6100 for the low~end. Canon eos~m consolidated to just 3 as well: M6ii Top, M50 Middle, and M200 @the bottom.

I suspect G100 = New Direction for Panasonic replacing 1 or 2 combined models.

Quite possible but considering the multiplicity of camera body sizes and types it will be a sad day for M4/3 when it adopts the shape and size rigour of other mount systems.

But Panasonic (especially, but also Olympus) seems to be capable of starting and abandoning niche camera body styles with some abandon. Therefore a new niche product is quite possible and and will only last until the next niche product opportunity arises.  I see no need to just make one body style suits all - like the slr/dslr or the way that the Sony A7/9 has evolved.
