If Nikon makes the 24-105mm a variable aperture f/2.8-4, I'd definitely see that as an advantage over a competitor's constant f/4 zoom in the same range.

I agree. I have the F DX 16-80 f/2.8-4 and I definitely appreciate having the f/2.8 on the wide end where I use it most. The variable aperture allows it to have a greater focal range compared to the similar size Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 (which I used to own). That seems like an acceptable trade-off to me.

Similar here. Traded the Sigma 17-50/2.8 for the brighter 18-35/1.8. Then added the Nikon 16-80/2.8-4 for more reach in one lens. I appreciate the f/2.8 at the wide end, but still use the 18-35/1.8 for available light. A Z full frame 24-105/2.8-4 would kind of combine both lenses into one
