The original MagSafe connector on Apple Macbooks was great and sounds like it might return on their latest versions. Buuut, that was only limited to power connections.
I think the Framework folks could take the concept even further by making all the cable-connected expansion cards break apart to protect the connector. The front 2-3 mm of the card could break away saving users from bent/broken HDMI, USB-A/C, etc. connectors. The nice thing in this case is that with the wider connector spacing is that there is a lot of design latitude, perhaps to add some aux strain relief via a channel the connectors could fit into.
