As two or three posts have already alluded to, there's a big difference in the Catalina file structure (bifurcated) and generating a bootable backup of Catalina is going to require a lot of work by the developers of SuperDuper! and CCC before they have a shippable (non-beta) version.
And as of now, the back-up drive will have to be connected directly to your computer as opposed to being on a network.
For anyone planning on jumping on the Day One upgrade wagon, suggest reading the developer blogs on the Carbon Copy Cloner and SuperDuper! websites. You'll glean a lot of 'under the hood info' about Catalina and might just decide to delay things a bit.
This article talks about having a good backup prior to the Catalina upgrade but they haven't addressed how you back up Catalina (including the Time Machine limitations with Catalina) the day after you've upgraded.

Glenn Fleishman wrote a similar article on TidBits.com back on the 20th and also suggested Quad9 for consideration (188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206).
@“We're confident we will prevail when the facts are presented and that the App Store is not a monopoly by any metric."
Well, we’ve seen that sort of bravado over the Qualcomm modem lawsuit, children making unauthorized in-app purchases lawsuit, the iBooks lawsuit, etc. and we know how those turned out.
Believe I'll just take a ‘wait & see’ on this one.
Maybe the FBI should develop and robustly fund a hacker division dedicated to breaking into iPhones. And if unsuccessful, maybe they'll finally believe Cook. Then their alternative is to pursue legislative solutions. I want to see which congressmen (on the record) are in favor of forcing companies employing encryption in their devices to intentionally build in a backdoor knowing full well it will be broken or given up by a rogue employee with a better offer.
I'm thinking it's not so much that they couldn't solve the engineering required to mass produce the device; rather, they couldn't produce it at price point that anyone but the Apple Fanboys would buy it.
Once the marketing folks decided they couldn't even make enough profit to offset the already substantial sunk costs, let alone the manufacturing start-up costs, it was adiós AirPower. Besides, "AirPower" has been a US Air Force term since 1947. Obviously, Apple's use of the word would 'confuse' the nation's airmen and we couldn't have that. 😜
