I'll admit I didn't look too much into this, but are there any boards with integrated PCIe 5 NVMe slots? Seems like a good chunk of the boards out now have 4.0 lanes to the NVMe slots with all of the 5.0 lanes dedicated to one of the full sized PCIe slots.

There are, yes. ASRock PG Velocita, Asus Z690-E Gaming... there's a couple. Others have AICs to do it (which work off bifurcating the x16 lanes).
