Anyone fitted mesh grilles on air intakes in front spoiler?

Did anyone fancy the idea of installing mesh grilles on the cold air intakes on the sides of the front spoiler, with the same OEM mesh pattern as the semi-rectangular intake in the middle section? Not only for cosmetic reasons, but also to avoid objects from entering those "black holes" (especially leaves and stones).

Why does the ///M Division not fit mesh grilles at the entrance of these air intakes (drag force - unrestricted air intake flow?)

For an idea, see the BMW 1M Coupe Kelleners Sport KS1-S:
