What makes it so hard for them to drill a few holes on top of the case? It improves cooling tremendously by removing all the hot air trapped on top of the case instead of waiting for it to be sucked out by a single exhaust fan or passively pushed out somewhere else. I refuse to buy cases without top vents unless it's a cheap system with low-mid grade video card.

I guess the flip-side is I've seen more than on college kid spill his her coffee/coke near a "ventilated" case, so there are reasons

That could be one. Though I like how some fractal and phanteks cases include both meshed and solid covers for top vents so you can choose if you want fans there or not.
