... its firmware is a strange mix between EOS and PowerShot codebases ...
IMHO that might mean there's no separate EOS and PowerShot codebase/team anymore.  :(

I've been thinking there have been hints of this for a while. Moving the EOS M to the "powershot" codebase implies a lot of EOS / ILC stuff has been made portable, and G7X II picked up things like "picture styles"

It makes sense, the death of the low end and rise of the higher end mirrorless means there's less difference and two separate codebases (and possibly teams) adds quite a bit of overhead.
Don't forget what the H stands for.
