Default the 404 page is rather empty.
If you add a "not found" layout you can add modules to it.

1) add a new layout and call it "not found" or whatever you like
2) set the route to error/not_found
3) add your modules

now you can tease the customers in (hopefully) not leaving so fast.

But why create a Custom Module ? Additional PHP/HTML Code could easy
be 'implanted' into the Theme Error File directly, to avoid additional work.
Just an idea... ;)

I wasn't suggesting to create custom modules, just the ability to add your existing modules to the 404 layout.
Back in the day (oscommerce) I used the 404 page to suggest similar products to the one they were looking for.

so simple, add your current modules as is or write specific modules for the purpose.

Thank you so simple and has a great effect on the page rather than the dull "The page you requested cannot be found!
The page you requested cannot be found."

keep coming with the nice little tweaks.
