So why include this piece of plastic if we don't already have a dock?

Because there is a large population of people who have earlier versions of iPods with docks and/or other 3rd party products that have a built in dock. Now they can just plug their Nano into it.

I suppose they could not include it and sell it separately. But then all those other people would gripe. It also benefits the manufacturers of other products that built in the iPod doc. Now they don't have to re-design their products. Seems like a good business decision to me.
