The are doing it's best to open Finch West before the Crosstown. Should they rename that to Line 5 and this to Lien 6 if that ever happens?
Why would they? For various reasons, TTC routes have been renumbered or axed over the years leaving gaps in the system but you don't see the TTC scrambling to renumber to fill in the gaps. The routes we have today are not all numbered chronologically according to when they started service either.

Tons of cities build lines "out of order", usually if they have pre-planned their systems. Santiago (where Line 5 was built after 1 & 2) and Vienna (who still doesn't have a line 5, despite a Line 6) come to mind

Is Eglinton station the only issue stopping the completion of this project? If trains are able to bypass the station without passengers getting off, would that be a deal breaker?

It appears that Cedarvale, Eglinton and Leaside are the three stations currently holding up progress - they are the only three where substantial surface work, such as backfilling and grading, needs to be done to say nothing of the subgrade work still ongoing. And of those three, Cedarvale and Leaside appear to be considerably closer to completion than Eglinton, although it seems like that date for those two is still months away rather than what the sources have been telling the CBC.

Of course, considering that just two of the stations have been given their occupancy permits (as far as I can tell), it's not to say that those three are the ONLY ones keeping the line from opening. But at just about all of the other stations crews have been working on demobilizing the sites, so their completions and occupancy permits are probably going to be issued in reasonably short order.

Let's hope they don't decrement all line number when Line 3 closes! /s

Sample map from the TTC shows number 3 going to the Ontario Line. Of course it’s probably not set in stone as the Province can just do whatever they feel like in the end.

Yeah even Metrolinx uses blue (although currently a slightly greyer blue) for the OL and usually things about it's line number/colour have some sort footnote about "Line number/colour to be decided in conjunction with the TTC". So yeah, it'll end up being Line 3.
