So what if it is true -- Leica to rebrand Canon equipment . . .

Just to add some fuel to the rumor, Leica R lens adapters to Canon bodies can be found all over the place.

How would this direction affect people's views?

Sounds good to me. I'm already using R lenses on EOS bodies now!

Leica 560/6.8 on Canon 5D:

Leica 90/2.8 on Canon 5D:

Leica 180/3.4 on Canon 5D:

Even thought the Canon 5D does not have the greatest dynamic range, I do notice a difference in tonal quality with the Leicas over my Contax Zeiss lenses I also use.

Why don't I just buy Canon then .... and since as of today, the only real partnership in manufacturing / development that LEica really get into is the old Minolta , and I consider the Minolta CLE the epitome of that relationship.

So are we suppose to see a EF mounted R10 !?

I was soooooo close to a DLUX3, but questions over moderate ISO performance put me off. If a Leica-Canon relationship extended to a Canon CMOS in the Leica body, it would be a cinch.
