Right now, every single itinerary is pricing to the amount of your first stopover, regardless of the final destination

Yes

That's good. But I may not make it in time -- The transfer of MR to aeroplan would be quicker than trying to find my aeroplan number....

No one has booked anything yet, or just not ready to share what they booked?

bigger risk than most deals.  Need to commit half the normal requirement to aeroplan.  Talking 75k+ mr points that are sick there. Personally there is no availability to my next two foreseeable destinations

The “real” price will show on the first screen, but when you click through, the lower price is displayed instead. In order to click through to book, you’ll need at least 50% of the miles required of the “original” price. Of course if you begin/end in other zones, you can get a business or first class “mini-RTW” for the price of a simple domestic.
