Canon News has uncovered a patent for a Canon RF 17-70mm f/4-5.6 BR optical formula. This is a pretty detailed patent, and kind of interesting with the inclusion of a BR lens element. A BR element can help in reducing the size required for such a lens.

One drawback as pointed out by Canon News is that this design requires image stretching from 17mm to about 28mm.

This sort of lens design would be a great kit lens for an APS-C RF mount camera that would also work on your full-frame RF mount camera. Which I think is the route Canon will go whenever they announce an APS-C RF mount camera body.
