If your thinking of having all four vents having the ability to be closed, Mazda advise against it as you will shut off the air flow around the cabin which will give you more condensation and less fresh air.

All well and good but when the fresh air is coming in below freezing, I would like the ability to shut them for a but while I defrost

Always wondered why I couldn't shut them all off

Another reason that they can't all be closed is that with no air flow through the cabin with the roof open, exhaust fumes can get drawn in to the area behind the windscreen and between the side windows.
