One argument Google has fielded for leaving out SD cards in their recent Nexus devices are that people can potentially be confused about where their images and such end up. this again because they are not exposed to the file system, but instead is supposed to interact with the images files via the camera and gallery apps.
IMO, that path leads to madness.
