I think we'll have to wait and see how it works in practice.  I suspect they thought the flip screen was used mostly for 1) selfies, 2) overhead crowd shots, and 3) ground level macro shots, all of which would be available or maybe even better in the new design.  They didn't stop to think about your type of "waist-level" viewing.

I also suspect that they decided a two-point hinge would be stronger (and maybe lighter) than the traditional tilt-swivel.
