I don't think they will ever implement a sophisticated multi-cam system.

I don't think they will accept FCP7 projects, although it's possible they will accept XML.

I don't think they will ever support OMF.

i don't think they want to spend an hours worth of effort to compete with Avid. I think they are happy to get out of that market and concentrate on making they best ever Youtube editor.

Mostly I don't think they are nearly as stupid as you seem to think they are. They sent a very specific message with this release -- they knew what the pro community would think and they released it anyway. My guess is Automated Duck will have a way to translate FCP to X in the next 3 months. Apple's been working on X for 2 years, if they wanted it to open FCP7 projects it would have.
