You could even make the baffle shell bolt-on, so mowers could be manufactured in mass quantities with the outer shell, and dealers could purchase them with the shell they need, plus it would be a piece of cake to make mulch kits fit up to it too.

Really, I don't know why anyone hasn't done this yet.
