<< others who don't need them should not have to pay for a lot of unnecessary features they don't want >>

Just to be clear, the expensive parts in a fancy display like that are the display screen and the touchscreen control. Once you have made the decision to spend that money, then most of the other features don't add much expense at all. Instead it's just a matter of programming the microprocessor.

In fact that is one of the problems with today's electronic devices in general -- they keep getting more and more complex to operate. Once the microprocessor is there, it's just a question of programming to add more features. Whether or not the user really needs those features is a different story. Linked below is a nice article on this phenomenon.
