Re: TS-E's might be a good reason not to want pop-up flash

what may appear to be unconventional to SLR is not at all unconventional for non-SLRs, all EVIL cameras that have no EVF, like GF series or NEX series, put flash on the right or left side of the shoulder. a large OVF SLR can do the same, under the shoulder LCD (so when it pops out LCD is on its top) or under the mode knob.

Pop-up flash needs to rise quite high with DSLR's (to clear the lenses that are significantly bigger than with mirrorless), the kind of design you suggest that would rise for several centimetres would be less than optimal I think.
