be nice to support things like off-camera flash extension cords.

What is an "off-camera flash extension cord"? Some cameras have a PC
Sync flash terminal for off camera flashes.

I'm talking more about basically a hot-shoe extension cord like this:

Also, having a more traditional hot-shoe means you could then use other devices like this GPS recorder that pop up from time to time triggered by the flash signal:

Though perhaps that need would be better met by having some simple Bluetooth signal sent out from your camera when image capture was initiated, with a hotshoe receiver/adaptor...
