And I am sure more zoom will be offered in this size of camera, but to be honest, it is already very hard to use 500mm reliably without a viewfinder and/or grip for stabilization.

I agree. My Fujifilm F900 at 20X seems plenty long - and it shoots RAW when I need it.

I'm not sure more zoom is as desirable as it may sound on paper.

Panasonic has added an acceptable EVF to its LF1 and new ZS40. The LF1 has a 1/1.7 sensor w/ 28-200mm which should satisfy most travel shooters.
