you ignored USB 3.0 (or USB 3.1) overhead.
you will never get 5gbps of data transfer from any USB 3.0 device, nor 10gbps from USB 3.1 as there is overhead
it same about SATA you will never get advertised 6gbps of data transfer, as there is overhead not to mention loss on coding and this sort of magical 550MB/s is actually hard limit

I've just put my spare 2.5" SSD drive in an enclosure. Can I call that a thumbdrive :)

M2 Sata works just fine. No need to emphasize the "DOT"

Making the whole PCB move vs making just the metal USB casing is definitely the best solution. small moving parts are shittier and more likely to break than a PCB on "wheels", where everything is still rigid..
