Very true well worth considering..!! But you have to seriously wonder whether cooling a rotary is really all that important.

As long as the fan is attached directly to the rad I think some of those shrouds are unnecessary, the only time the radiator is normally running is when the car is idling or not working hard anyway, the rest of the time its like blanking off half of the radiator.
Hence the OEM shroud making use of the whole radiator area.
