This is why Apple is moving towards "fixing broken screens" from "replacing the whole device". This is an unethical practice. If you're going to pay for put of warranty replacement at its because you're going to use it. Also I don't think Apple would replace a device damage that extensively but I may be wrong.

Put it in the trash and move on. It's not even your phone.

You appear to be correct. Quote taken from apples own warranty support site:

Certain damage is ineligible for out-of-warranty service, including catastrophic damage, such as the device separating into multiple pieces, and inoperability caused by unauthorized modifications.
