I want to agree with you since I always like to tinker with my devices and upgrade them to squeeze out the best performance. Unfortunately I don't think FMD's are anything like PC's. The FMD is more like your monitor or your mouse. It's a peripheral, not a system. I'm sure when the great FMD war is over in a couple years there will be tons of customized options developed for the winning device, and maybe some aftermarket hacks to improve quality. I just don't see it as a standard.
