 Just because Apple didn't add X feature or released X product doesn't automatically mean that there's a philosophical reason behind it.  There's a big reason why adding split screen multi-tasking is not something they could do on a whim: iOS was originally designed with a single screen size in mind.  It made sense at first, because of the technical limitations of the early iOS devices, and it helped the App Store a lot because developers didn't have to bother with making...
 I don't see how it means "to go back to 3:2" since Apple never released a phablet before. 3:2 would be in between 16:9 and 4:3 at a size that is also somewhere between those two devices 
Judging from this rhetorical question you seem to imply that split screen multi-tasking would be useless on an iPad, I have a feeling that any example I can give will be dismissed in one way or the other.
Split screen multi-tasking?
I hate to repeat myself, but if Apple releases a phablet, it will be 5.7" not 5.5".    5.7" is exactly half an iPad mini screen which would make it 1536x1024 at 326DPI. Two apps optimized for this screen format could run side by side on the iPads.
I ran Photoshop 2.5 on my Mac Classic with 2.5Mb of RAM! :)
Maybe they are switching all the servers in the back store to brand new Mac Pros?
I wouldn't be surprised if Apple unveiled a larger iPhone, larger iPad and/or a phablet at WWDC next year.   Why at WWDC? Because new resolutions will require developers to make use of the auto-layout APIs if they don't already (and many don't).  So these devices will need to be announced in advance.   iOS 8 might also introduce split-screen multi-tasking, which will also require the use of auto-layout.
Don't you think that hackers would've revealed that it's possible to activate the camera on a MacBook without turning on the green LED? Unless you believe in some sort of conspiration that would've "silenced" every hacker who discovered this security hole, which in my opinion would cross the "paranoid" line. We cannot know what happens to data we send over the internet or whether our phone calls are intercepted by some organisation. But on actual devices, it's possible to...
In other news, McDonalds asked a guy to remove his hot dogs stand from inside their restaurant.
