I'd be nice if you can use an oil extractor to change the oil but the filter is still under there.

I made ramps out of 2x8's laid flat and nailed together. Long one on the bottom, medium length in the middle and a small one on the top. Make as many platforms as you like. Mine are 3 tier giving 4.5" height. It's not a lot and not suitable for any sort of major repair work but they lift the lowered car just enough to get the oil out and a new filter on.

Only if you have no warranty from the dealer left to live up to. There is no place in the maintenance manual that states a 10,000 mile oil change interval. Now maybe Mobil1 will warrant your engine at 10000, but i would love to see that in writing.
The closest one i deal with is once again my daughters Accent. That maintenance book says every 7,500 miles.
The other issue along with oil holding up 10000 miles, is the capacity of the filter you choose. I have read where some have ran the Mobil1 20000 mile oil and changed just the filter at 10000 miles. You still could be setting yourself up for a battle with Toyota should engine lubrication be the root cause a any problems at hand.

Well you are right the oil filter would be a concern holding up 10,000 miles. And I too question the wisdom of 10,000 oil changes.

However!

It says right in The owners manual 12 months or 10,000 miles between oil changes which ever comes first.
