MINI now do that. I paid something like £120 for my centre arm rest. They've now incorporated it in the latest specs in to a "pack" along with a load of things i dont want to be forced in to buying for £900.
Reading a bit more about this trend, it seems partly driven by WLTP as they have to test all the different options for effect on consumption/emissions. Of course it's being spun, as everything, as "simplification" and "it's what consumers want".

Indeed. MINI allegedly did it because of WLTP and because customers wanted a simpler buying model. No. We didnt.
