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?

Sure they did. A whole bunch of the Rebels didn't have battery grips. And none of the M Series did either.

But many of the APS-C DSLRs did have battery grips  - if you wanted an APS-C and a battery grip there were several models from which to choose.

So far none of the APS-C R-bodies have grips.
