Hot shoes on compact cameras?

Is there an "official" reason the compact cameras do not have hotshoes? It seems a deliberate omission, so I thought I would ask.

The 1" BSI sensor is impressive, but without a hotshoe, I wonder. Are there common solutions that I simply don't know about because I don't have a compact?  I currently shoot M43 format primarily, but I have history back to the 1960's. I also ask because the field is very different now; and if there are better solutions, I'd want to know about them.

Thanks in advance.

... Probably the actual, true, real me ... or thereabouts ...
