I know the lines that are forward of the thermostat leading to the oil cooler up front and back don't get drained with a normal oil change, so why intergrate this tiny drain system to bleed off what would be maybe 1-2% capacity of oil, when 10-12% is left in those lines running back and forth up front?

In other words, is this critical to drain this along with the dry-sump tank and engine, since it amounts to so little oil in the big-picture?
