I recall reading somewhere that the introduction of 11 speed was introduced as a stepping stone to 12 speed because Sram thought the market wouldn't tolerate how different Eagle was. Take that with a grain of salt since I don't have the citation, but I recall it was with one or more people from the design team based in Europe (Germany??). Assuming my memory is vaguely correct, I think there is some merit to making that judgement call, cynical though it may be. I'd still make the call to go straight to 12 speed since it respects those who make up the market.
