It'd be nice to have the full suite of controls of course, but I'm sure Canon wanted to keep costs to a minimum (to hit their price point), and also to maintain product line segmentation (between the R7 and its big FF brothers).

But...why the segmentation with the R bodies when they didn't do so with DSLRs?

Actually Canon did do this with the DSLR range, but not in a logical fashion.

Early models all had grips available, but the late EOS 77D, 800D and 850D don't. Also, the compact EOS 100D/200D/250D don't have grips. The EOS 1100D to 1300D, 2000D and 4000D don't either, but I'm sure I remember reading somewhere that at least some of these have contacts for a grip.
