If you didn't do a dry sump the sump you would have to design the sump to be big enough to hold that oil capacity in the most vulnerable part of the bike the bottom.

Oil cooler would add price, complexity and weight, but always a great option to add longevity to an engine.
Yeah, that's actually I consider a design oversight on the part of the LC8 production bike.
