Price in Battery Backup?

Give that we are calling this "Pocket Drakkar", should we build in an UPS board with lithium battery? (And a slightly thicker case)?

I would be fine with just ensuring it has a port to connect a lithium battery to externally (which all PIs do by default).
Just a microusb connector that can connect to a power supply, powered usb port on your computer, or an external battery.

Not sure putting a battery in the case is really worth much.

What are you expecting power draw to be on these?

Yeah thats the question.. You can buy a really inexpensive micro usb based plug.
