Gock 19X. Compact slide, full size frame?

Glock is rolling out its 19X and I just got news in my inbox this morning.  I haven't watched any of the review vids or read any articles.

This is just my take on the basic concept.

A Glock 19 slide length married up to a Glock 17 frame?

I've seen wildcat things gone that give you the Glock 17 slide with the frame cut down to Glock 19 length, but to do the opposite?

I really don't get it.

With my carry G26 I walk around with the 10 round mag inserted and have a G19 mag as my reload.  If I was carrying for duty work I would probably rock a G19 and have 33 round G17 mags in my bailout bag.

Who is this setup suppose to appeal to?  If I feel a need to carry the G17 then why would I not go with the slightly longer slide length?  That's in a duty carry scenario.  Why would I ever want a G17 frame with a G19 slide in a concealed carry role?

What am I missing?
