While I agree with much of what you said, I don't agree with this. If someone doesn't need some of the new features, then that is their business.
Carsten, I'll trade you. You get what you want, but, in return, no more "as there were countless fine photographers and fabulous pictures before LiveView came, everyone can do without proper LiveView implementation". That negates any form of progress, and is highly condescending, if not downright insulting, towards those who feel that a new and expensive camera should incorporate a feature that has been everywhere for the last 5 years and that they use all the time. Which, I will readily grant you, is not the case of all of us here, but of some, yes.
So, Carsten, deal? :-)
For info, I am presently on a landscape-shooting trip, and yesterday I checked how often I zoom in on "other than centre". I had thought it was 25-30% of the time, but found it to be even more often than that, because I actually rarely put the centre of interest of the image smack in the centre of the image.
