Wouldn't it be nice to have Lightroom and Rush in one subscription? See, you already have 1TB cloud with Lightroom, user interface is very similar and straight forward, both have fresh and fast UI, both works on the phone the same way as on the PC. It would be nice substitution for Adobe Photoshop and Elements product line. Elements, being updated every year, looks like a years old dead corpse being revived periodically. LR and Rush would make a thick line with a modern product.

I won't reply officially but I can tell you differences, you should re-think again.  Light Room is for the professionals who want a robust and filtered system, even more than Elements and to work along with Light Room.  Rush is meant for those who want a quick premiere for You Tube, such as the old "floaters" from the 1960's which none of you young guys ever knew about, which were a side-production in a major studio meant for a user's viewing only, and most of them were audio tapes during a recording session, not signed off, not ever sold in stores.  In other words - Rush is for Social sites, You Tube.  I cannot see a professional using Rush for a serious production.  Rush a SUPER trimmed down version of Premiere.  To bundle that with something, it could be better with Spark.  Rush can be utilized for a quickie such as a resume/interview meant for a social site.  Re-think this again.  In my studio I would fire the guys who use Rush for something meant for You Tube or social networks.

Great opinion from the other point of view, thanks.

1) "Light Room is for the professionals who want a robust and filtered system" - I think this is not a target audience anymore. Look at those features like face recognition, tutorials, interactive tutorials and even more tutorials in the app we are seeing lately. Next to it here on this forum you can see missing features the "pros" are calling for for years without response.

2) Lightroom is great for me and yet I am far from being professional, using it for family photos mostly. I see it as a little better google photos, really. Cloud, mobile app... I am absolute BFU and Rush also does everything I need.

Also, Lightroom allows you to upload and play videos. Nothing more, not even share them. That is where Rush functionality would continue the flow.

RUSH is the SAME as Photoshop Premiere which edits video, and is like Light Room.  The only way to SHARE a video is for a user to play it on Windows Media Player or 5k-Player. 

You don't share it with Rush.  Rush has a cloud for storage but that's it.  If you use the cloud to play it, that's renting the video (from the cloud) but not owning it.  In this collaboration there is NO USE for Rush except for editing a vid to a shorter vid for You Tube'rs but only if needed because there are a lot of other vid editors available.
