Have you considered offering single flex-bay covers with holes for buttons, such as for lights, fans, etc...?

The problem is: How many holes? Where? What size? There's almost an infinite number of possibilities.

Well even if you selected a size and sold them with buttons, that match the power and reset buttons, I would think that for many the actual size would be meaningless as long as it went well on the front panel.

For anti-vandal style switches you could probably get away with a single plate with say four 19mm (22mm switch face) holes. Then either supply or direct customers to purchase 22mm covers or 22mm > 16mm adapters like the ones Performance PC's sell.
At least then you'd only need to make plates with a single hole size and a sufficient number of holes, and any spare ones can be plugged up by the user.
Could probably do the same for round rocker switches since they are usually based on a 20mm hole, but I've not seen covers for that hole size (not that I've gone looking)

Yeah, that's sort of what I was thinking as well.
