Yup. But sometimes the government steps in and says you have to do X. Other times, its "everyone else is doing it so we gotta do it" or there is enough data in the surveys that cause a product to change. The cap system at this point is nearly as old as the automobile is. It can't get any cheaper. Switching to a different system incurs (quite a bit of) cost.

And you are right. Sometimes, if a small change can save a money per vehicle, that can cause a change as well.

Daimler did that to the point of causing the vehicles to be almost unsellable. Lessons learned.
