Well from a practical point of view using my SDV (super detail vision)
If rain runs into those vents, we see in the 2nd movie that all of the computer controls are directly underneath them! Water + electronics = ZZRTZTZ!!!
Now if they are seperate little watertight "dishes" underneath that wisk it off to the sides, and perhaps drain down, why? What purpose do they serve? They can't be vents for the flow through of the motor intake to remove heat if they don't open to the engine area, right?
They would not be much help in keeping rain from getting into your canopy track around the edge either.
These can be painted on by a tromp loi artist, without the water problems I suppose. But if all that electronics are underneath, I wouldn't want any seams around it. But as they pop up to be accessible to work on, (good idea) They would have to be separate pieces anyway, but the vents aren't needed. Any ideas? On most street cars we have vents there to create flow through to get heat away from the engine (and to let us see the smoke when the engine is on fire!)
detail vision power fading.... uh,
who we talking about?

Well, number one, they have to be there just to be accurate. Two, why couldn't they be functional? If nothing else have a tray under it with a drain tube. This would also work well for pouring out your fountain drink when it gets warm.

Then they fill with rain water, never dry out and gather dirt! Everything must have a purpose! Could be intake air for the passenger area... with a drain when it rains...
