The only really innovative cases to come out in the past few years are made by small companies such as Case Labs and LittleDevil. Danger Den is always doing great things. The only air cooling cases to be truly innovative are SilverStone's Fortress FT02 and to an extent Antec's Lanboy Air. The former performing much better.
Corsair is fast approaching mediocrity in my humble opinion. That said, I have owned quite a few Corsair memory kits and they performed as advertised, as well as a couple different HX series PSU's and the aforementioned 800D which I enjoyed for a simple mass produced WC solution.
No need to apologize, your case preferences are yours and you're completely valid in having them.
Obviously you're primarily interested in watercooling, and as such the 800D has your interest. The 650D is also a pretty good case for watercooling, if you check the thread you'll see guys with dual loops with a 240 on top and a 200 in front, some of them have a 120 in the back, as well.
From an aircooling standpoint, yeah, the designs of the 600T and 400R/500R are more typical, but I look at them as more polishing an already good design with finishing touches that make it easier to build and upgrade your system than I do as revolutionary mind-bending pieces that change the entire industry. That being said, I'm more than happy to produce those parts, too. Only thing is, if you want them to really change things, then you have to spend a long time working on them. Some of the stuff I'm working on now might not be out until 2013 or 2014.
But I'm glad you liked the 800D. The 400R isn't your thing - doesn't bother me that much - everyone has a different opinion and the 400R is definitely not built for the same customer as the 800D.
