Agreed, in full.

Back to air curtains: How about a combination chin splitter+air dam+air curtain?

Elliptical air dam extends down vertically from bumper and laterally to fair front wheels, chin splitter/undertray comes forward horizontally from engine bay to intersect air dam, and stagnation point intake in air dam feeds some cooling air to radiator, but also feeds lateral channels between air dam and car body to feed exit slots of air curtain by leading edges of tires.

Wish I could draw and post this idea, as my description above surely is lacking in clarity.
