Leica quality, No gloves

Mik_Rin wrote in a now locked thread:

I was surprised to see that the body assembly was not done with gloves. So much for cleanliness as the body sheds a massive amount of skin fragments at all times.

Yeah, that is exactly my first notion about Leica's process. I really don't understand why they are not using gloves to protect the product from sweaty saline mixed with body oils, leaving fingerprints inside the camera which eventually will turn into permanent oxidation marks.

This is not exactly the highest quality, even though it might not affect camera functions or reliability except the organic dust forming from epidermis of course. Am I the only one who finds this a bit uncomfortable?
