Oh yes, manufacturers would all love to use the "This is Model T, it is all we have, take it or leave it" approach. Ford was pulling it off, and Apple is pulling it off right now (which is why they are raking in so much money). As long as it works it is great. You buy parts in large quantities, manufacturing and assembly are much more efficient, and stock keeping of items and spare parts are greatly simplified. Sales and service training is a cinch, too. It is every seller's dream.
But we are customers, and such a system is a pain for customers whose needs are not being met. One size, one type just doesn't fit all.
