First, you'd never get a standard to stick.
As technology changes, batteries change.
Start with three, now four, now five...
Look at battery history.
For many years, you had a choice of AA, C, D-cells. Then AAA, 9V.
Most anything you had would run on one or more of those.
Look at cellphones. How many different cellphone batteries?
Even the ones exactly the same size moved the connector.
Why? Market forces at work...Would you buy a smart phone
with a battery from 1980?
You're underthinking it.
There has never been a need to keep those the same. But there aren't that many different gas cylinders to exchange.
A bunch of lawyers were sitting around the office playing poker.
“I win!” says Johnson at which point Henderson throws down his cards. “That’s it! I've had it! Johnson is cheating!!!”
“How can you tell?” Phillips asked.
“Those aren't the cards I dealt him!”

Except there are so many different battery technologies - unlike fuel
gasses, which are NOT compatible with one another or their charging
systems - so you can NOT compare gas cyls to batteries.
You are SO uneducated about technologies - you just make a total idiot
of yourself every time you post. You are joining Mr MacCaw in the

OP suggests, "you simply pay, take a full one, and slot in
your empty one." However, the battery for a Nissan Leaf weighs about
600 lbs. I don't know about your strength, but I don't know of anyone
who can just "take a full one, and slot in your empty one." Not
anything similar to the ease of changing the starting battery in a
traditional gasoline engine.
It's been tried, but I think that Tesla decided that the SuperCharger
approach was a better approach. The cost to install the machinery to
swap a 1200 lb battery would be high.
Most people with a Tesla also have a gasoline powered car for long
trips, or they can rent a car on those occasions, or they can just wait
the 30-45 minutes for a charge at a SuperCharger.
