Why is the body open?

This applies to all removable-lens cameras (that I know of) but it just occurred to me...

Why is there a big hole in the body of the camera when you remove the lens?

Surely a piece of glass could be in that hole, in front of the mirror (behind the lens) to prevent dust getting in.
