I guess I am young and wouldn't mind being called kid but to me it makes it clean looking to not have all those badges on it. I mean look at older "classic" cars if you will most will have 1 badge on the back. Not like today where put a piece of plastic to denote every option in your car. I love the way the debadged focus looks, really clean and simple. I think it makes it look more sporty. Plus with the cheap tape they use on them anyway they are just going to fall off anyway as much as I wash it.
