Anything is possible in the future (within reason).

But as the main complaint about these light, and small notebooks is that they LACK these drives, I just don't see that as a good choice for more conventionally sized machines anytime soon.

It's not an ideal situation for me, but for me it's better than having an optical drive I won't use. Plus I can add additional batteries without hibernating the machine first. I do realize that I'm in the minority for multiple battery use.

If this was a bay for an optiona optical drive, it would likely also accept an additional HDD, if the power was available, but not another battery.

They did that in the past, I think, but I don't see it happening again.

Actually, I don't see an open bay at all for Apple, in the future.
