Top-Mounted Filter, but Oil Pan...

I saw an interesting thing at the auto show. The Toyota FJ Cruiser has a top-of-the-engine mounted oil filter (on an aside - I'm afraid this rugged outdoorsy type will be relegated to mall and high-school parking lots instead of its intended purpose). Anyways, I know it's probably harder to do, but the filter could probably be re-routed to an easier location (not sure how to retrofit the old location vs. new, but I'm sure it can be done with some moderate technical skills). Furthermore, could a hole be drilled in the baffle and have a funnel with a tube run through the hole to catch the oil to drain; and depending on the angle, with a ratchet extender to loosen the plug (maybe two holes, one to drain and one to get the ratchet up in there)? The hole(s) could then be plugged with a commercial snap-plug to maintain the low Cd. It might make a mess if not done easily, but it could reduce the continuing pain of taking the shroud off at every change. Just brainstorming (again)...
