"Or if you don't add power, make an induction-coupled connector, since Ethernet is transformer-coupled anyway"

Not so trivial to make Gb ethernet work over anything that's not a very near field tiny isolation core transformer....and then it would still need a cable unless you want your tablet flat & touching that grimy McDonald's table top. I'd vote for a cheap fiber optical link with no ESD concersm, no pins to bend, and can be wiped down. Whatever it is beyond WiFi unless Apple gets on board there's not going to be any new connection method unity.
But we digress...
