They are usually too bright to use as DRLs and the beam pattern is almost totally uncontrolled, making them useless as fog lights. In either case the glare makes them a hazard to other drivers unless used solely in conjunction with high beam.
Of course, as driving lights they don't have to meet any standard but the usual situation is that they provide excessive foreground lighting, making your high beams or driving lights less effective because you're blinded by the foreground. The driveway photos earlier in this thread actually clearly demonstrate this - the distance vision is way better without the extra lights.

I think you might be stuck with getting something as close to correct for the size and then fabricating the rest yourself. BriteLed used to have some round ones which were basically a sealed plastic insert full of small LEDs and then they stuck that in a rubber housing. So in theory you could remove the plastic from the rubber and mount that - I planned to do something like that but wasn't happy with the idea and gave up.
