I would much rather have something get on the cleanable glass surface in front of the sensor than on the shutter mechanism itself. It's easy to clean the glass. It's not easy to clean the shutter mechanism without doing damage.

This is such non-R6/R5-owner cope. You don’t have to clean the shutter, ever. What are you even smoking? But obviously sensors do need to be cleaned occasionally. We all know that. When they get dusty, you get black specks on the image. Of course it makes sense to have a sealed barrier in between the outside world and the sensor when changing lenses.
