Exhaust? X-pipe or straight through-why?

Ok, we now have several manufacturers coming out with exhaust for our cars. Some have a built in x-pipe(crossover) and others are straight through.

Shiv's is straight through and recommends exhaust without the x-pipe to get the full potential.

If thats the case, why are these top-notch companies'(Milltek) putting crossovers in theirs. Obviously they do R&D so they must have come up with some idea.

If it comes down to sound being muffled then I understand, but if people want performance, they should have options. At least available baffles that you can put in or take out to keep sound down. Thats something Thermal offers on their exhaust for Audis.
