I doubt it the diameter is smaller than A Mount, I don't think they originally planned for FF, it's just pure luck it barely fits.

I would be really surprised when they designed the E mount they did not think about Full Frame. They were designing a mount for the next 20 years at least. They were probably thinking of all the wild possibilities that might be needed in the future. Even if they thought that using the mount for full frame was not likely they made sure it's big enough that it's possible to make a full frame system with it if they choose to do so.

Also Canon designed the EF-M mount to support Full Frame as well. But when they saw what Nikon will be doing with the Z mount, they decided to go with RF mount instead to not be disadvantaged.
