well I think it is long overdue for Pentax to implement such power management features - Nikon cameras I use have excellent battery life reporting and management and it would appear Ricoh intends to at least match if not exceed it.

I thought the sensor could be tilted anyway. Whether it does or doesn't it will soon. But if you're using it in the way its been described to be able to get the bottom and top of a high rise in focus, then that opens the question of using CDAF, and using focus points to make or check focus. I think you'll need a touchscreen to work this new feature, and if I'm not mistaken, the original link has one patent that might suggest this. "Power information management device and power information management system".
Rear tilt is of no use for the architectural use you suggest. You need front rise (or rear fall).
