I tend to agree with Jay here. It would be great to have a way of
expanding the board. From your standpoint, the advantage might be
larger volumes. I was ready to order and then thought about what I
would do with it. I have a high speed serial interface (RX8E) and that
works for me. What I would like to have is a way to experiment with
some other peripherals that I will never have and see how to
virtualize them in an FPGA or CPLD.

Of course that is your prerogative. I respect that this is real and
not some paper design that gets discussed forever and comes to
I also see all that board area with nothing on it and think why not
populate it with a layout for some other things.
What I am wishing for are Omnibus and Unibus adapters to an FPGA.
