I'm guessing Apple figures there are going to be two people using an iPad:
1) The person isn't worried about people going through their email or they don't even have it set up
2) The person can lock the entire device to keep people out.
It's funny because there is an option to lock the youtube, itunes (which is already password protected) and safari app. But the mail app is more sensitive than any of those.

It just doesn't bother me. I would never let someone use my iPad that I couldn't trust to stay out of my email. Doesn't mean I don't understand where you're coming from, it just doesn't matter to me.
I prob will just keep the Email to the Droid for the time being. Or see how the Gmail page is rendered in Safari.
If you hit regular version it's perfect.
As I said earlier: There is an option to turn off email accounts in Settings. Although it isn't password-protected, the likelyhood of someone, especially someone unfamiliar with the iPad, finding that switch and turning it back on to read your email, is more remote than just clicking the icon and opening up the mail app.
