Maybe it's a bit of a reach, but isn't the Deepmind kind of already like a CS80 in a lot of ways?
I don't know. For an analogue poly-synth it's quite complex:

The VCO has switchable saw and pulse waves, with a dedicated LFO for the PWM, a mixable sine wave, separate resonant dynamic high- and lowpass filters, mixable noise, envelopes for filter cutoff and volume, a global LFO (with external input) that can be simultaneously addressed to pitch, cutoff and/or volume, a ring modulator with its own dedicated LFO and AD envelope and finally tremolo and chorus effects.

And since there are two parallel channels, you get twice the oscillators, filters, envelopes and PWM LFOs, so setting up nice fat detuned saws or PWM sounds isn't a problem, and with no reduction in voices.

Add to that all the real-time control over filters, volume and the LFO via global performance faders, key-tracking, velocity and/or aftertouch and you've got a pretty capable instrument even compared with modern poly-synths.
