I'm sure I could. I just like having the cleanliness of everything internal to the case. Would there be any issues with using the gpio and a 5v adapter in tandem?
If you are connecting the Pi to the EINSY via header pins, it at least needs to share the EINSY's ground (or you are opening the door to one of them misbehaving). In theory you should be able to use an external power adapter for the Pi, connect the ground header pin, and leave the V+ header pin disconnected... however I haven't tested this, nor do I specifically remember reading a post from someone who has.
