Either of those require programming time, which is precious and rare. Opaque EV suit likely did not. In addition, it's not just head size/shape. Andorians for example couldn't use it if things were restricted.

its another way for them to tug at your wallet......
This makes no sense to me. How does limiting customization mean you buy more?

Ah, I see what you mean now. Like, buy the "Combat EV Suit" mechanic, and then apply whichever suit's visuals you want to use? One problem might be recognizability. Currently, if you see a First Contact suit, you know what it does. If you could swap it out, you wouldn't know at a glance whether someone had the extra bits or not. Dunno, just speculating. The concept sounds feasible.
