I did a quick mock up of the rear using a set of controls from existing cameras. A9 sub controls because they're small, and D810/D500 AE/AF-L, rear command dial, and left side menu buttons, plus A9 - AF joystick, just 'cause it was easy to layer it into the spot where I think it should go.

I think it makes for a compact camera, relatively uncrowded, with full controls.

With some more careful planning I believe the control layout could be simplified, but I just wanted to prove that real controls could be fit without shrinking them. I made the flip screen extra large, and kept a very large viewfinder.

Here it is next to an A9 and a D5600 for scale. Again, pretty small, and using an F mount.

It looks good, but how will you communicate this to Nikon, being as they are stuck back in the 20th century?

They read DPREVIEW don't they !
