[Oliver Peters] "Would there have been justification for Apple to produce a headless Mac design that fits between the Mini and the Mac Pro in their lineup? Something with comparable guts to an iMac or iMac Pro, maybe Core i9 based, but expandable and starting at a lower price?"

If Apple had competition for hardware running OSX they would have justification, because there is certainly a market for it. I'm in the market for it, as I've said may times here. But much like SONY during the tape era who would hold off on making lower cost machines with higher end specs until pushed by JVC, Apple won't produce anything unless pushed too by competition. Why make something smaller for less profit when they don't have to? They might re-evaluate after they see the initial sales on the nMac Pro, but then again they might not.

The specs for a MacPro lite are pretty obvious: i9X processor (or Threadripper if they want to go that way) Radeon vii or Vega GPU, max 128 gig memory, SSD system drive, Thunderbolt 3 etc. Cost between 5-10K. But don't hold your breath.
