Yes, some (early) versions had a mini-pci module, similar to the
ASUS WL-500g Premium.
However, the price is still more than 3x as much as we pay for similar,
but more up-to-date hardware today; most cheap routers come with a
single WiSoC + RAM + Flash...
Apart from that, I'm not sure if modularization will truly solve the
problem as it would still require that devices are assembled by
end-users (and not re-sold as a whole) as well as suitable hardware
components (especially SoftMAC WiFi mPCIe modules) being available...
