Yess!!! This is the internetz! and the reason I pushed for a forum at TMA. To be fair to both combatants - a camera on the pad would have both advantages and disadvantages. I don't think I would make use of one, but... if Apple had originally pushed to have one built in rather than the stupid dongle they showed at the presentation, they made a mistake. It is better to have one included (which won't get lost or break) as it won't take up extra real estate, and be easier for the user.
People who use cameras for video conferencing will use the camera. People like me who cannot (literally, foreigners in Korea are not allowed to buy the iPhone) get ahold of an iPhone would do well with an iPad-mounted camera. Shure it would be harder to aim than an iPhone, but it would be much better than using a macbook or something else.
