Generator 30 amp twist lock outlet ?? WHY?

Our Honda EU3000is 30 amp twist lock outlet broke on our last adventure.

We use a adaptor (as I believe all RV generator users do) to go from 30a twist to 30a RV cable at the generator.

Any good reason not to replace the outlet on the generator to the same style as the 30 amp outlet that is used on all 30a RV cables? That way i could plug directly into the generator. If I ever need to use a twist lock cord (chances are never) i would use an adaptor. I would rather not need the adaptor for use with the AS.
The replacement should be the same for either style.

Has anyone ever worried about this?

I don't think it would be a problem if it fits or can be made to. The reason for the twist lock is to keep it from coming out due to vibrations, the adapter eliminates that advantage anyway.
