Going back to the pensioners statement - if I understand it correctly Honda are holding off producing a Type R because of European emissions legislation.
This being the case they are presumably targeting the new Civic at the current buyers of the 5 door variants. These buyers will have different requirements to the Type R performance and modification boys and I think they have read the market well.
I wonder which 8G Civic variant has sold the most units and therefore has been the designers target audience?
