The battery doors on both my HS10 and HS20 are identical to the HS20 shot above.

Can't see a problem with positioning of tripod mounting as I would always start a long session with fully-charged Eneloops. I suppose it could be argued that it is an inconvenience having to change the batteries occasionally. :-)

I'm guessing the next thing will be no printed manual.

Because the tripod mounting screw insert is made out of plastic instead of a metal, the plastic threads will wear out sooner or might get damaged.
I happen to use a tripod a lot, especially with the longer zoom. Satisfied?
Speaking only of the HS10 which I still have and use, it has metal tripod threads, not plastic. I can see why you have so much to complain about. Your batteries must not be all that good either to warrant so much changing for your 12 hour a day keep your camera on all the time shoots.
