If Canon abandons the EF mount and stops supporting it, they leave an opening for others to take open that spot. You already have third party cameras/camcorders that use the EF mount. People will fill the void and Canon will lose out.

Who makes a 3rd party EF mount DSLR?

Sigma had their SA mount cameras which used EF protocols but a different mechanical interface. Although, I think they were using their reverse engineered interpretation of EF protocols which they also used for their EF lenses.

Judging by EF adapters for other mirrorless cameras, like the MC-11, any 3rd party EF DSLR would probably still not support Canon EF lenses as well as Canon's adapters on R bodies...

A7R2 with SEL2470Z and a number of adapted lenses (Canon FD, Minolta AF, Canon EF, Leica, Nikon...); A7R converted to IR.
