I am with you and it makes sense to me and have asked the proper authorities off the record about such things. This is what it comes down to, what is the INTENT of the action? If you are building a car from scratch and then putting the VIN of another car on it, the INTENT is to defraud. Not like a thief, but lets face it, the car is NOT a Jag, it didn't start out as a Jag, and it IS fraud to say that it is. Where as if you started with a Jag and highly modified it, that is very different in that your INTENT wasn't to say it was something it wasn't.
