As I am developing sound, smoke and light installs for all my 4mm scale EM locos whether new build or RTR conversions I am planning to free up as much space as possible in locos and utilise the tender space for the motor where possible and use a cardan shaft to drive the loco wheels. I think this is a pragmatic solution to the matter - kind of having cake and eating it too perhaps? For instance I have a couple of Hornby 2Ps with tender drive that as new chassis get fitted, I can remove the tender drives and replace with new motors while leaving the boiler space free for mass, smoke unit and lighting etc.
