I am pretty sure the only reason catch cans are not added by the manufacturer, is because it becomes a maintenance item easily overlooked by the average car buyer and could pose a real problem if not regularly drained. Manufacturer's have in general tried to reduce and/or stretch out maintenance requirements.
