What makes you think that it doesn't already? And has had for years ?
I hope you have some data to back up your damnable claim. Wizards are usually renowned for wisdom and I would hate to think that you alone lacked it.
It's because the 15" uses quad-core and Intel hasn't made any yet, only dual-core (standard in the 13" versions). If you think Apple is happy about this, then you might look at the ongoing rumors about switching to its own design of ARM chips. Being tied to Intel's capabilities is no more satisfying that being tied to IBM's PowerPC capabilities. And we know where that went.  There was nothing on-stage but I am sure that there is a lot of unhappiness in Cupertino about...
The web site lists several adapters, for HDMI, VGA, etc etc
Not so. From the Apple product page ... Headphone port Headphone/optical digital audio output (minijack) Support for Apple iPhone headset with remote and microphone
I am not sure that there is enough space for a "standard" size USB connector. 
No. That seems to because the new CPUs are available for now only in dual-core versions, not quad-core. The 13" uses duals so it gets an update. I expect the 15" will be revved when Intel releases quad-core models of the variety needed.
The text and email will probably shut down most of the fraudulent "adds". I'm sure that if I got one for one of my cards that I didn't just add, then I'd be on the phone right away. But your comment about "other means" got me thinking: Apple does provide certain info to the bank as part of the "add" provisioning process - I think that your current location is included, for example. So I wonder if it also includes something about other cards you might have registered in...
I'm not sure that this is quite true but I agree that ACH security is quite poor.  As an example, I believe that if there is an authorization for ACH transfers on your account (and Citi does have this) then it's bi-directional. There is no way to say "I permit transfers into my account but no transfers out". Which means that if your employer does direct-deposit (via ACH, as is standard) then they can drain your account.  WTF ?!?
Actually, the victims of this fraud are mostly not users of Apple Pay. They're just ordinary folks who've had their credit card info hacked, and loaded onto a stolen iPhone (or one itself obtained by fraud).
