I haven't seen a full plastic HDD cage ever, Ive seen platic used on the quick release features, this is for several reasons but cost efficiency would be the first. Literally everything you mentioned is either a spray coated metal that may seem like plastic or a situation where a non conductor or softer material is ideal to use. Not even old school hot rods were full metal...you just can't do that and at this point why waste the metal? Personally a Carbon fiber case would be awesome, it would probably cost $500-$1000 but it would be more durable and a fraction of the weight.
Metal feet, maybe metal risers for the feet again having a smooth metal as the surface of a traction point would be abysmal. I understand the concept of not wanting some cheap plastic piece of junk that goes without saying, but plastics rubbers and other synthetic materials are better than metal in some cases, no pun intended. It seriously sounds like you want a lightning rod next to you.
Finally got around to ordering all of my parts and received them last night. Threw everything together and fired it up, looks good so far. I still have to do some cable management as well as figure out why my HDD is having a hard time fitting into the removable trays (Anyone have any ideas?). Once I do that, I'll definitely take some pictures and post them. Until then, here are the specs.
