I would have little use for a 300 mm prime.
Depending on the circumstances, it would either be too long or not long enough
I have 70-200 and 500mm (sold my 300mm f4 to help pay for the 500) - guess what focal length I miss the most
I have held off on replacing the 300 as the plan was to get whatever Canon replaced the 100-400 with. Sadly that has taken much longer than expected, and the price looks like it may be a bit rich!
Fortunately the 70-200 f4 IS
works very nicely with the 1.4x convertor, and I can live with the loss of a stop. The old 100-400 is not an option as I know it doesn't match up to either the 70-200 (with or without the 1.4) or 500 so I see no sense in taking a step backward.
