SAKC is a base board, so, if you want to use it is necessary make a daughter
board, my students this academic period will design some of this boards for
some applications. If we change the LCD connector Orientation we need a big
case for the final product. I think in this architecture:

====================  Daughter board
|                                                   |
|                                                   |    Spacers
|                                                   |
====================      SAKC

You are putting a little plastic envelope under LCM to avoid short

If the user don't want to build a daughter board, is possible design an
acrylic "tape" for the LCD and fixed it with  and use some spacers for
mechanical stability.

In your design, it looks like the LCM will be right above the main header

No, if you move the LCD, the main connector is available, let me upload a
new photo
