Pancake lenses are important for these types of cameras because that's what enables them to be put in a jacket pocket or a small purse. Without them, it ends up being another camera bag camera, in which case you can go up a bit in size and get a ton more controls (and for many people they are less likely to bring the camera if they need to bring their camera bag).

^ Yes. ...and along this line of thought, I'm wondering why there aren't more fixed lens µ4/3-sensored cameras. Imagine something like the Sony RX1, but in µ4/3 and at a reasonable price.

Then it is not a Micro Four Thirds camera, it would be a 4/3" sensored camera.

The Micro Four Thirds name and standard is for a system camera standard, with interchangeable lenses.

I think a good marketing campaign by one of the camera manufacturers would really help. YouTube videos, like the one Pentax put out for the MX-1:
