As a bonus, all (or one) of the on-screen data, histograms and such are readily available & big enoigh to view easily.

On the other hand this obliterates the pocketability of the compact - the main reason I would chose it over a DSLR - or can it be folded away?

Yes, it folds very compactly:

If you have an old folding slide viewer (or just a magnifying glass) check it out - here's what I used before I found out that someone makes one ready to use and doesn't have to be carried seperately:

If yes, this would be a solution once my trusty Canon Powershot gives up its ghost and I have to replace it with one of the newer, viewfinderless models...
