Nikon 1: Once Again no 4:3 Option

For years, I've waited for the Nikon 1 System to offer a 4:3 Aspect Ratio masking option, by which I mean a choice of a sensor crop that appears in the viewfinder. It would cost nothing, I imagine, and complicate operation not at all.  I at least would buy the camera and at least two lenses if this option were offered (the size and speed of the 1" system hits a sweet spot for me, just enough smaller than Panasonic or Olympus m4/3 cameras/lens combinations).  If even a small number of others feel similarly, this would be worth doing. Other manufacturers offer multiple aspect ratio crops; Nikon itself does in its high-end cameras. But Nikon and Sony do not in their compact systems and it entirely escapes me why.
