Rebel Rebel - with a new sensor?

The hype, rumors, leaks, and speculation intensifies as we are just hours away from the official Canon day on August 24.

Some leaks on Canon China allegedly give some details on the new Rebel:

If that is so, it would mean that Canon thought they had to have a 10mp consumer DSLR to compete with the other 10mp DSLRs using the Sony sensor (A100, D80, "K10D", etc). This means that Canon willingly had to sacrifize the happiness of some (not all) 30D users who will be disappointed that their new camera has fewer megapixels than the new Rebel Rebel.
