I think it comes down to whether it needs to be removable for engine service. Maybe a C-channel to catch the front edge, held forward by the fasteners elsewhere?
I like the Idea of having a slot to fit it into, and I certainly want easy access for maintenance. I suppose I could pop rivet an aluminum lip to the back side of the factory piece, which would provide a slot for the pan to slide up into.
