Are you saying the slit size be dynamically changed while scanning across the wafer for each field/chip/image?

I assumed not (because that added complexity is useless if you're making rectangular chips) but if it can be done at great enough precision you're right, the EUV hardware wouldn't be a barrier to making hexagonal dies.
