I like the picture what kind of stupid engineer would put caps that close to the V regs?

Using the PCB ground plane as a heatsink to boot what a stupid design. Unless you're using low wattage SMT parts that won't generate much heat there's no excuse for this. At least a dedicated heatsink can have fins and more surface area.
Elements of the past and the future combining to make something not quite as good as either.
