How about this- 

A 5D was like half of a 1D, but a PM7 is about .7 of a PM10

 ;D

More than likely, they went with 7 to differentiate it as a step above a CL5, but not as high as a PM10.  5 < 7 < 10   I think Yamaha has a thing against using even numbers.

Redundant power supplies are a point of failure question.  On a large analog console a spare PSU and a couple of master strips and you're covered for most failure modes.  The corresponding back up for any digital console is a second console.  Spare PSUs in that case are placebos.

Probably going to be too much $$$ compared to features as the rest of the current Yamaha range.

I really like the CL/QL stuff, but I can get two mixers just as reliable doing twice the amount of channels each for the price of one QL/CL with RIO racks.

QL1 should do at least 48 mono/8 stereo channels. Preferably 64 for the price.
My little Si Performer 1 is just as reliable and do 80(!) channels to mix.
Only major difference between them is the lack of Dan Dugan for 80% of the jobs this level of consoles do.

And the meters on the SC sucks, but I can live with that.

If I could only be young again. Wouldn't it be nice to be just starting out with option like that board available.

At the intro of the M7CL I asked one of the Japanese Engineers why M7...and was told 7 is a very lucky or holy number

From wikipedia:

The number seven is also considered an unlucky number due to the way it is written as Kanji 七 which is very similar to the way a samurai would commit seppuku were he to have been accused wrongfully. This type of Seppuku is called Memboku Seppuku.[8]
