Why is Sony opposed to full swivel LCD monitor vs limited use pivot ?

Sony's design heritage was disrupted

by their purchase of Minolta.  Prior to that we had the F series with the lens and body that swivelled around each other, then we had the R1 with the perfect placement of the LCD.

Waist level shooting is ideal for full body portraits.  I'm quite tall, so when I shoot from eye level my photos look like satellite images.

People feel that putting the camera up to the eye creates a stable platform for shooting.  With the R1, waist level shooting was just as stable.
