Have you seen the oil filter setup on a VW VR6 engine?  It does
indeed have a cartridge design where only the internal filter element
is replaced instead of the whole filter body.  I don't know if this
setup has better or worse filtration properties than the standard
canister filters (I guess that would depend greatlyon whose
filter element you buy)...
