Perhaps it would be interesting to have a sort of breakout box, with 
audio/video connectors, builtin powered USB, maybe wifi, serial ports, card 
reader, JTAG, etc (not saying that it should necessarily have all these at 
the same time, just writing ideas here). It would be significantly less bulky 
and likely cheaper than assembling these components 'by hand'. As somebody 
mentioned, it could be in a form of docking station. Or maybe the kits you're 
talking about already go in this direction ? :)
