I finally spoke with an area Leaf salesman who didn't tell me 'You have to buy what we have in stock.' He is reluctant to do a factory order because of a supposed long lead time, but he is going to check the list of cars "in the pipeline" for his dealership to see if there is one that matches my checklist. I'm thinking I may have to choose a color other than scarlet ember (?) but I'm hopeful I may actually get the SL I don't want, so I can swap the seats or at least cover them, in order to have Around View.
It's looking to me that when Nissan tied the Premium Package" upgrades to the SL only, in the apparent hope of boosting SL sales, that what they have actually accomplished is simply a reversal of popularity with the SV. Now the SVs will be the last cars sold on the lot, along with the S without the Charge Package. Since a loaded SV and loaded SL seem to be about the same price now, all that Nissan has accomplished, IMO, is making me angry.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.
