That was my thought. Where you could have a nice lower with your nice custom trigger and stock of choice and could order a couple of uppers tailored to different purposes straight to your door, it could end up as you said. Each upper or each upper/lower combo could end up being considered the firearm.

While it takes the upper to chamber a round and direct it after launch, the lower is still the part that acts as the go switch.
