I would echo those comments.

As for how to communicate it to the manufacturers, my guess is that they probably already know it is necessary and will eventually work it into their new models but it will take time. I may be mistaken here, but when I visited the Scalextric website a few weeks ago I got the distinct impression that the new cars can take a pluggable decoder along the lines you have suggested. I would have say having converted a couple Minis to digital and a Ferrari (leg amputation) that is was a lot more difficult than doing a loco - even the Scot.

Mind you with decoders like the TCS DP2X-UK being as small as this, just making the body easier on and off would be a start. This one is in my Patriot
