Canon Patent Application: Consumer Grade Primes for the RF mount

This patent application has a series of small primes of moderate aperture, which we all need. However all the lenses are under the image circle size for full frame. So I would presume these lenses are for full frame image circle and software stretched to fit.  

As Canon states;

To provide an optical system having good optical performance, easy to manufacture, and compact

I would suspect these lenses if they were ever made would be all under $300, and even then I'm not sure I'd even buy them.  However, small and light primes, even if you are slightly resolution disadvantaged would have their uses. However, personally, I don't like this trend.
