(removable shutter)

No, the shutter on an Avus (and most plate cameras in my experience) unscrews from its mount. The Bergheil is unique in having a bayonet mount that allows you to change lenses in a reasonably seamless way---with the Avus it's more like something you would do for service or to reuse the parts. You *could* keep a family of shutters around with different lenses mounted in them, I suppose, but changes would be sort of inconvenient as compared to the Bergheil.
