Actually at a dollar or two (shipped) adding USB hub is not even close to the cost of B+ or any other Pi. It gets tiresome hearing how many insist a $5 computer is the same as a $35 one. I think only those in developing countries and those here who do not have money to burn appreciate the real difference.
The speed of Ethernet over GPIO is not great therefore one would need to add either:
LAN9512 to the Single USB BUS to provide 2xUSB & Ethernet
USB Ethernet Chipset to the Single USB BUS
..both scenarios would add extra circuitry / board layout change / cost.
Therefore RPT would have to manufacture several models of ZERO to suit everyones taste
