Why are there no cameras with viewfinder on the right?

Re: Left-eye-dominant left-hander

I am left-eye dominant, which is one big reason I prefer cameras that have the viewfinder mounted high, so my right eye is not blocked by the camera body. This assumes horizontal/landscape orientation, of course; vertical portrait blocks neither of my eyes, though my portrait orientation is, of course, opposite that of a right-hander, which is one reason "gripped" cameras have never particulary appealed to me, except for the added battery capacity.

I am left-handed, but operating the shutter with my right index finger has never been a problem. Photography is a two-handed endeavor, anyway, with plenty of things for each hand to be doing.

I wear a badge and pistol, and, primarily with 7D cameras, with 10-22mm and 100mm Macro L lenses, shoot evidentiary images at night, which incorporates elements of portrait, macro, still life, landscape, architecture, PJ, and occasional action.
