reComputer R1025-10 - connectivity options

I understand the reasoning behind the design of reComputer R1025-10 -
However it would have been nice if these options were available

  1. one of RS485 could have been Modbus TCP master - I know that one of the LAN ports can be used - but a dedicated Modbus TCP would have been nice.
  2. If the 40pin connector could have been exposed.
