It seemed like people (with the exception of yourself) were agreeing that a fully-featured USB cable should be included.
Where are you taking this from?
My point is that nobody should ever be forced to overpay. We chose the internals by a democratic vote, and some people will get features that they don’t need, but that’s fine. Because you can’t upgrade the internals, so we need to strike a good balance. However, now we’re talking about accessories. And here, nobody should ever pay for what they don’t need - because those who do can just buy those accessories separately.
In this matter, it’s not about finding the balance by employing democracy. It’s about not making anyone overpay. So even if the majority wants more expensive things included, why make others pay for it? Even if you’re part of majority, why can’t you just click that one button to add what you need to cart before clicking “pay”? You will make a lot of people happy by moving one finger.
Disclaimer: I don’t have any numbers of how many people want one accessory or another, or how much people are willing to sacrifice the quality of other parts in sake of better accessories. So in this comment I’m just discussing a generic situation about accessories. It doesn’t really matter what the price difference is - as long as it’s more than just a few cents (well ok, let’s draw the line at $1 if everyone is happy with that) - nobody should be forced to pay more for what they don’t need. I understand you can’t make 100% of people happy, but let’s try to reach at least 95%
