I don't even ever use flash on my point and shoots or my iPhone. The single best thing most people can do for their photography is disable the flash.

Shouldn't that be their choice?

Then it may be a con for them. It isn't for me. Buying a 5D to shoot on-camera flash seems an idiocy.

But if you don't care about light quality , why not use a compact?

There is a reason most pro cameras do NOT have onboard flash.
