Guess you haven't put fuel in any Ford in the last 7-8 years? My '13 ST had it, and all my Fords since. I'm not sure when they started on the trucks.
My 2011 F-150 has it

Maybe I am paranoid, but cap-less spout is a vulnerability and yes my F150 is the same way. It bothers me too.
No vulnerability there. No way for fuel to come back out. It’s a proven design that has been a Ford standard on all their vehicles for years now. They auto seal and only open with a filler spout. You need a plastic filler spout to fill the tank from a gas can.

That's another good point. When closed it creates a recessed pocket at a downward angle. Where does collected dust and debris go if you push the filter nozzle in without checking and cleaning it out?
I've had capless for 7 years, and this has never been a problem.
