I find having a bunch of buttons I don't need is far, far less annoying
than not having a button that provides some functionality I really like.

As not everybody wants the same kind of thing, I'll put up with a camera
with buttons I never use (which, in my case, probably includes anything
related to video) if it makes the camera attractive to manufacturers.

Programmable buttons are also a way to reduce button overpopulation.

I agree with John. I simply ignore the buttons I don’t need but am thankful for those that allow me to immediately move my focus point, switch to continuous focus or dial in exposure comp. I do agree with Hurn’s desire for brighter bigger viewfinders. And like him I bemoan the time it would take to digitize the tens of thousands of pics I shot on film.
