You are right about all of that but there has to be some reason why Sony removed it.

The same Sony who went back to a flash shoe from 1913 without getting any real compatibility with other 1913 equipment, and at the same time failed to make an adapter which could securely hold the non-1913 flashes attached to the camera?

Yes, they probably have their reasons for what they do....

The created the new shoe to be increase it's capabilities and have new accessories like shoe mounted GPS.

Except, the haven't created many of these new accessories, just removing the capabilities they might have from the new cameras.
