My guess is it lends more of a 'facial design' to the Gundam than a merely
flat plate...then again, for me, flatten the face plate of the Gundam and
you've got Optimus Prime......If you stretch it you could assume one slit
a 'nose' and one for the 'mouth'. I think that the absence of 'facial
would detract from the whole 'humanoid' aspect of the machine.

Yeah...I can kinda see it...but then again, they weren't moustaches
that you could grab hold of and spin the damn thing with!!!

I think it depends not on the style of semantics but on the
mind of the reader....

Hell, what about the 'ears' on the GX and the Wing Zero?
And I won't even go into the 'butt cheek' panels on the RX-78....
