> Shorter me: this is why I keep asking people who want flattening to actually provide an example of where flattening is useful, that isn't (a) assimilation, (b) a result of weird language semantics from some non-JS language, or (c) an authoring error.

Since (multi-level) flattening only occurs for assimilation (per Promises/A+ 1.1), it appears we have been talking past each other. All examples of multi-level flattening will necessarily be examples of assimilation.
