What are the odds of Canon making RF f/1.8 "L" primes?

Canon has been releasing very high end f/1.2 L primes, and then some low-end f/1.8 primes, but no weather sealing, etc.

It looks like historically on the EF side Canon hasn't made any f/1.8 L primes.  Would they maybe do that for RF?  Perhaps wishful thinking on my part, but I like that Nikon has been releasing high quality f/1.8 primes on their S line, which is the equivalent of Canon's L line.  It allows you to get excellent optics at a pretty fast aperture without having to shell out serious big bucks for f/1.4 or f/1.2 L primes (not to mention the smaller size and lower weight of f/1.8).

Hope Canon will start doing the same.
