The New iPad: 5MP Camera but No Flash?

According to this image from The New iPad page then there's no flash. :(

I know it's popular to shoot down the idea of a camera of any size on the iPad but giving us an awesome 5mp camera with AF/AE and 1080p video but no flash kinda stinks. Yes, flash photos suck. Yes, the flash isn't great anyway. BUT the flash does come in handy for video (parents know tracking kids is tough) and even just as a simple flashlight (i use mine a lot on the iPhone). So why the omission?
