Shrug. I think we're going to just have to disagree on this one.
There is plenty of space in an iPad3 to add an SD card and Apple would have no issue eating the cost.
To my mind, the UI implications are what deter Apple from both SD cards and widgets (and the battery life implications of widgets), but it isn't something either of can prove to be right about.
