Personally I'm okay with that.  I don't want to have to pull the recorder out of my bag to access the back for a battery swap while recording.  If using NP-F I'd rather use an outboard sled attached to the locking hirose power input, but I'm fully satisfied using a Talentcell into the non-locking coaxial adapter port, as I expect most tapers will be.

I really want them to fix Mid/Side monitoring and Input Trim linking though!

In contrast, the similar Tascam DR680 "Channel Ganging" feature does allow for different trims between ganged channels.  One can gang/un-gang various channel combinations to adjust pairs in unison or the entire bunch together at any time without automatically resetting the trims and screwing up the relative balances.  If one does want all linked channel trims to be identical (say for an ambisonic microphone).  They can be set that way before linking them.
I have grown to love this about my 680mkii.

Interesting to see the changes to this recorder.  Thinking about getting a box with 32bit float so this one is in contention with the F6/MP6ii.
