Haven't we seen the inside and it looked pretty empty? Does Microsoft think we like hiding/lugging around these things?

Who ever designed the system sucks. The PS4 is A LOT smaller with a built in PSU. Goes to show where the quality is.

Overheating issues. If the whole system overheats, together with the power brick inside, you'll have a nice little BBQ grill.

Might sound harsh but I am sure most would agree

How often are you really moving your console?

I don't see how the PSU being external is any indication of poor quality. Maybe if there are overheating issues still after that then maybe, but for now it sounds more like careful planning. I'd rather it be outside, there's no reason for me to have it all in one container.

I think longevity of hardware is a better design choice than trying to make it compact, especially for a static non moving console.

Just like that careful planning with the 360...
