For the SCOR I cannot see a reason why they couldn't adjust the frame to fit a longer dropper at max depth.  Compromises can be fine.  I ride an aluminum bike with external rear brake routing.  Cheaper and effective but a compromise of aesthetics.   What did SCOR have to say in regards to why they could not accommodate a full length dropper or make the cable routing easier?  I think bike companies, their designers and product managers, should be 100% transparent if asked these simple questions.   I am glad you brought up WR1.  Dustin Adams is NOT happy with the cable routing as he has stated in media interviews.  He also made a conscious choice in not having tube in tube and was very open about his design considerations.  So did he make a design faux pas in my books?  Yes.  However he was completely honest and transparent about both these things which lends him credence towards an improved second design attempt.   Again, maybe I am jaded but the bike industry keeps trying to sell lipstick dolled up pigs and I am no longer the wide eyed naive buyer I used to be.  AKA, don't spite on my cupcake and call it frosting. P.S. Dustin, I am rooting for you.   \- full dropper post insertion to max depth \- no more exposed cable routing under the BB (FFS please) \- some sort of foam sleeve solution if no immediate plans for tube in tube?
