Exactly. The one reason that cars in the past had shift gates on cars was due to the long throws. The gates prevented the driver from slapping gears by missing the gate.
On cars with trannies like the S2000 and the RSX-S, those gates are so exact that the plate would do nothing but serve a "bling" appearance. But then again, the plate would look more like a fat and stubby "W".
