Do I need GrillGrates?

Ok I'm working on perfecting my outdoor cooking setup. Currently, I have:

MAK 2-star
Medium-sized Weber gas grill (natural gas)
(soon) Small portable charcoal grill

I have a 1/4" steel griddle on the way, which will fit on either the pellet or the gasser, with room for airflow.

I plan to cook a lot of low&slow on the MAK, plus smash burgers and fajitas on the griddle, reverse-sear thick steaks, cook chicken breasts or sausages for a crowd on the MAK or gasser, and also have the flexibility to griddle, grill, or smoke other meats, fish, veggies, and so on.

My plan is to use the MAK for the low part of reverse searing, and the portable charcoal for searing.

My question: Would I see benefit from a set of GrillGrates (sized to swap between both the MAK and the gasser), or are my bases covered?

An aside: I was considering cutting a set of GrillGrates to sit down in the MAK with airflow cutouts on the front and back, replacing the wire grates. Has anyone tried that?
