The blades have 2 uses, one is to sweep out the ash and the other is to control airflow to the coals. If you are using it as a grill the coals would go on the lower grate, coals fall through when burnt and the blades sweep it out.

Throwing away the blades would ruin the primary purpose of the kettle and make this less appealing to kettle owners. I think if you made cutout's on the bottom of basket it could sit on top of the blades which is ideal for manual airflow control, the basket would turn with the blades.
