Not only do I agree, I resent whatever money went into R&D and manufacturing costs for a feature on a camera that I don't want, won't use, and is too often in the way.
How about spend that same money giving me better image quality in one form or another, or a more robust camera design?
Adding video to a fine stills camera is like strapping some banjo strings on a Stradivarius because "someone" might like both violin and banjo music. Hell, while we're at it, we might as well put a can opener on the thing too. One might get thirsty during a concert.
