f7.1 and f11 makes no sense using on a such professional bodies like the coming R5/R6.

I would disagree. I could certainly use a lightweight/inexpensive 600mm or 800mm f11 if the optical quality was fair. I only need it for a few scenarios and the alternative $10,000 options would be overkill. A cheap 600mm f11 (with OK/descent IQ) would fill a nice place in my kit and perhaps the professional body it would sit on would just let me get the most out of it.  I've had poor luck with TC's so might give a f11 prime a try.
