I have one of the originals and it sits in the bottom of a laptop bag unused. A good stylus/pencil would be appreciated and neither the one I own or the new one seem to be worth the trouble or expense.

there is too much nonsense about this. Unlike the notebooks, there is nothing to protect it when putting it down. You need a case for that. Now, with the protrusion from the better camera, and the thinner case itself, you need a case to protect that, and have it sit flat. That’s the reason why Apple’s folio protects the back. In addition, the folio is just much better than previous one.
i don’t know why Apple moved this, unless with the new folio it would have been triggered all of the time when closed. If anyone want to make a keyboard case using the contractors where they are, they will, if they think there’s a market for it. If they don’t think there’s a market, they won’t, no matter where the connector is.
please, let’s ralk about something that matters, such as why they didn’t fully implement the USB C connector. Because this is trivial.
As for the bizar-o placement of the smart connector, what about a dongle?
