Just because some people don't use a DVD drive doesn't mean no-one does, for goodness sake!

That is true, but Apple is not known to provide the 100% or even the 80% solution. They have their targeted market and they aren't bothered by those who didn't buy a Mac because they were outside it. Just ask any user of a Mac Pro or Final Cut Pro...

Apple has long had a seething hatred of optical drives. They are dumping DVD as fast as they possibly can, and they appear to have successfully waited out Blu-Ray without ever having to put one of those drives in a Mac. So while you might be right...you are going against the grain, as defined by Apple.
