I see your point Scott, and that's an idea.... but the reality is that those chainstays are not any shorter than the current practice and those are conventional bits (BB shell & dropouts) so there is no issue with crank arm to chain stay clearance/contact. Heck the builders on this list and other revered KOF builders don't use curved chain stays.. Just ain't necessary.. No, the reason behind those curves is marketing. I think they called them "power stays" which purportedly added stiffness and responsiveness, etc etc yada yada.. Ha!

The left chainstay bend was probably done simply to assure adequate crankarm clearance. If you look at how far out the bottom bracket those stays are, and the outboard-bias detail of the rear dropout joint, that chainstay would've been mighty close to many crankarms.
