A new type of camera?

I don't understand why the camera makers don't design compact camera with APS-C sensor AND a zoom lens.

We need compact camera, but high quality ones.

The response of the makers is 4/3 interchangeable lenses camera. We don't need interchangeable lenses, we need compacity so we need compact camera with an APS-C (or/3) sensor. The interchangeability of lenses only means the loss of compacity.

In a camera the non-compacity problem results from the protuberance made by the lens. We can accept a slight larger box if it is of flat shape, not a protruding lense.

When the cameramakers will design a APS-C (or 4/3) camera with a good quality flipping zoom lens as on the compacts?
