If the goal of the CA commission is to make competitive seats, why does it not follow a map similar to 538's redistricting?

Currently the 7 Safe GOP seats seem like a fig leaf.

Is it realistically possible to pack Kevin McCarthy and Devin Nunes into the same district of California loses a seat?  What about to eliminate one of their seats without endangering any Democrats via ripple effect?
The problem with that idea is that you are ripping apart an R seat. The commission tries to make competitive seats and respects the minority party to a degree. They would not take another seat from the GOP.

Why do you think this?

Have there been any maps of Michigan redistricting on here? I can't find any.
