Default Hard drive based cameras ever?

Any plans for digital cameras and camcorders with built-in hard drives
to ever be created?
I would think the little 5GB drives similar to what's in in a Rio
Carbon or iPod Mini could work very well in a digital camera and a
40GB hard drive from a full sized iPod would work pretty well in a
camcorder.
Why are people opposed to it?

Because hardrives are usually rated in "ms"... where non-volitle RAM is
rated in "ns". So, you really want to slow down the write times?

Flash rated to write three orders of magnitude faster than a hard
drive? Really? Wow. When can I get some?

Mircrodrives have been available for years.
I've been shooting with 1GB hard drives since 2001.
4GB drives have been available for some time.

My old Kodak DCS410 has a 512mb hard drive in it. That is the only storage
medium I can use with the old clunker.

Don't think they are- several new digital backs for medium format SLRs have
built in drives in addition to CF slots. IIRC, the new Mamiya and Hasselblad
DSLRs will have them too.
