...it would be nice if the raspi team would provide some kind of a naked raspi without the connectors and maybe only route the possible connections to a single pinstrip.. would save some money i think..
for schools or whoever needs it, they could provide a adapter cable which fitts onto the pinstrip and provides on the other end all connections.. but that again would involve more money to spend..
ahh.. its hard to make it right for everyone
A Raspi with port connections but no connectors and an optional add on docking cable/station would be great. Alas, as you say, the add on might cost much more than the cost of shipping with the connectors attached, and the number of people wanting the Raspi without connectors might be, relatively, too small.
I guess, we will be fine as long as we can remove/replace the connectors ourselves without risking damage to the board.
