Shielding P90 soapbar covers?

   I am wondering: people usually shield control cavities of single-coil guitars (strats, teles, etc.). Also, pickups with metal covers are shielded (like humbuckers and dog-ear P90's, lipsticks, filtertrons, etc.)

Fender also came up with those ashtray shields that were supposed to cover the bridge of old teles or the pickups on basses (some SX jazz basses even have them, but i know it's just for looks - most people prefer to remove these).

anyways, what about shielding the covers of soapbar P90's underneath with copper foil? I have thought about it before, but forgot... It seems it'd be easy enough to do and you'd still have a stock look, plus, copper foil isn't as thick as pickup metal covers, so perhaps it wouldn't affect tone...

I wonder if anyone's done that?

Please help.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
