Your bullet #4 is just incorrect. What you see in the r5 was perfected in the 1DX3 and it actually an iteration beyond that camera since it now gives you coverage 100% in both directions. The r5 and r6 are fully mature cameras as much as the 5D4 was and will ever be. I certainly am not replacing my EF glass either, but Canon is not even trying to force

Isn't it a bit early to state this, until there are reviews about the actual finished product rather than pre-release versions of the camera as well as experiences from actual end users like us?

I do personally think R5 and R6 are unlikely to have major quirks and are likely viable successors for the 5D and 6D series, but I wouldn't be completely surprised to find out there are some non-trivial issues/bugs that need to be addressed.

Bugs don't make a system not mature. Bugs are a fact of life. Given that the AF system in the r5/r6 is basically the same one in the 1Dx3, and that camera shoots like a demon, I feel confident in saying these are mature systems, as that is what Canon is best at. Let us not forget there is the R, the RP, and all of the M-series cameras with the latest one being the M6 mark 2 with a 32 MP sensor.  Canon knows its game. Other than 8k video, there is little that is totally new in these bodies.
