Why did the 335 never put the jack on the bottom of the guitar?

Probably because it was easier to produce that way - they just had to drill all the holes in the top.  Easier and quicker to wire too. 

Also I can imagine that if they assembled the guitar and someone messed up drilling a hole in the side, it could be harder to deal with than on the top...?

Like SGT Pepper, I like a 90 degree cable for front-mounted output jacks, but I also like to loop the cable around thru the strap for extra security. 

It's embarrassing as hell to be playing live and really getting into it, only to step on the cable and have it either pull out, or do damage to the front of your guitar.

Yep. Its a mistake everyone makes once. Then you realise 'oh yeah, that's why everybody loops the cable...' 🙂

The very reason I went wireless, I was constantly stepping on my cable & concerned that it would eventually cause damage to a guitar.
