If Fortuna inmates are [spoiler], could it mean that all Corpus are [spoiler]?

SPOILERS AHEAD

DO NOT READ IF YOU ARE NOT MAX SYNDICATE RANK ON FORTUNA.

Upon reaching max syndicate rank on Fortuna, you get a revelation. 

IMO it is one of the best plot twists in the game in a long time. 

Keep it up!

So, by now you know that all Fortuna Colony inmates are just severed heads, that live inside the torso of the inmate.

For all we know, the torso and limbs may not even be the person's, they could be borrowed, bought, leasesd, rent, stolen, be partially or fully missing, or replaced with robotic versions.

We know that Corpus, like the Grineer, are remnants of the Orokin, and Corpus excel at making cheap version of once-great tech. They are profit first and foremost, but are trying to re-develop the means of making tech as great as the Orokin era tech as well.

Could that mean that the severed heads are also a cheap man's version of "Orokin immortality"?
By replacing the body, and finely controlling the nutrients of the head, it is conceivable that one can achieve at least a much larger lifespan, as it is much easier to prevent aging and damage on the mass as small as a head.
It is also a perfect explanation to the Corpus obsession with huge, boxy helmets to protect their heads so much. 

IMO it would be super cool to have Corpus be slightly reworked in light of the recent developments.

I think it would be cool to move the "headshot" weakspot to the neck, making Corpus be subject to "neckshots" to sever off their heads. The chin frontsplate would be separated from the helmet, and can be shot out to expose the neck weakspot. There would be a backplate that can be shot of as well. 

Shooting out the helmet would not make that much of a difference, until you see the severed head on the ground. 

A severed Corpus head with the helmet would have muffled shouts requesting rescue and eventually teleport away with a small version of the Corpus teleport beam we see on Fortuna. 

A severed Corpus head without the helmet would be screaming in utter despair asking for help, maybe would have an invulnerability energy shield around it, and would also eventually be taken away.

If you want to have it even more disturbing:

The lower level crewmen would not yet have undergone the "head detachment evolution", only the higher level crewmen (like snipers) did.
Some killed Corpus  would be harvested for their heads by a variant of Hyena/Lynx/Zanuka. The quadruped would teleport into the field, ignore the Tenno, go omnomnom on their heads only, leaving the bodies behind. After the belly is full of heads, it would teleport away. This enemy would have an invulnerability shield and would not attack the Tenno. It would be just to "add flavor".

Negative. Corpus Crewmen were/are another failed experiment of the Orokin which the Corpus picked up (Crewman synthesis project). Essentially Crewmen are cyborg synthetics that need occasional recharging/refueling at certain locations around Corpus facilities. On Corpus ships these are small cabinets which are mostly seen on Eris, where Crewmen are stored in, as said, storage cabinets until they're needed. On terrestrial facilities, Crewmen are suspended on recharging racks at various locations. 

While they function as humans a "Crewman" is not a human. Now, some Solaris do talk about getting promoted to work in "silver-plated uniforms," but this does not necessarily mean they become Crewmen; they could just work as tractor drivers, rail clerks, and any other job which doesn't require esoteric Corpus knowledge. Combas and Scrambus' are normal humans, as they were Corpus nobility clothes. 

One larger thing is, Corpus culture is fanatically spiritualist. There would be many levels of knowledge which simple slaves or tractor drivers like the Solaris would not know. This is likely why the Corpus use Crewmen - Crewmen guarantee a very low if not non-existent knowledge leak. Hence why Solaris have no idea how the Corpus got the Weeping Posts back online so quick. Normal civilians don't know the things that Corpus nobility know.

I doubt it, sure the organics might be sold off as transplants like in any other dystopian Cyberpunk setting, but the reduced-to-a-head thing seems to be unique to the Debt-enslaved.

We know the Corpus simply live long lives, (from Darvo and his Dad) we also know that they procreate "normally" compared to the Orokin.So it seems much more likely that the whole "rig" thing is a a lower-class-worker specific thing.
