It's quite obvious that they used space under viewfinder not because it's technically impossible or cost prohibitive to use space only under top cover, but because decision to make it look like leica was already made, and they used it just because it was available. It probably probably saved them couple of bucks for slightly simplified construction. If you look at a diagram from fuji, where internal construction of ovf is shown (Don't remeber where I saw it) you'll see that even if you move this lcd projector (which is under ovf now) closer to lens, it would not interfere with sensor compartment, because this lcd is quite small.

Lots of space is wasted anyway, however you would spin it.
