Restated: Any hope for an extender?

Thanks to those who have replied so far.

As I think I might have implied but didn't outright previously state, I fully realize that the lack of room in the lens mount barrel end of the RF 70-200 f/2.8 lens to fit Canon's previously designed protruding EF lens extenders, makes using extenders of that design impossible for use with the RF lens.

What I have been asking is, is there someone out there with true experience in and/or knowledge of professional optical design, who knows whether a completely new type of non-protruding designed RF extender of very high quality can or would likely be made by Canon, so that it would be useful on my RF 70-200 f/2.8. I know this is probably a difficult question, with few people really qualified to give an answer, but I'm hoping to get lucky here, in order to understand my lens choice options.

Thanks to all again.
