I agree that the PCIe expansion chassis is not elegant. This whole Thunderbolt thing strikes me as benefitting Apple first, and customers second in that at least we're getting some ability for high speed connectivity rather than none, because Apple long ago decided to be done with traditional desktop hardware. But this is what's available, so if you want to use OS X the Thunderbolt to PCIe enclosure is the new paradigm unless/until companies come up with a totally different form factor for their products that directly connect to Thunderbolt as the primary interface rather than effectively being adapted to a PCIe slot.

The alternative is go Windows or Linux for video work. *shrug*

Anyway I don't think the G Speed Q meets the OP's requirements if he's considering mini-SAS.
