It is true that a clockport is slow, but it will add a lot of compatibility with old expansions, e.g. existing USB controllers. Having a slow connection is better than having no connection at all.

What I see as one of the major positive things of the V2 is that it is not a NG Amiga which banishes HW compatibility with all the old stuff like the X1000 does, but boosts the old platform with more modern tech in places where it makes a difference.

It could make sense to create a new type of expansion connector instead which could be much faster than a clock port to utilize the Vampire's potential with future peripherals in mind, like USB and Ethernet. But then a converter should be made from this new interface to a regular clock port. Then you can have the best of both worlds and still use whatever old expansions you have.
