I do not think Flexible Transactions are good, why is saving a few bytes a major priority, it reminds me of the segwit mindset, "Everyone should run their own node". If transactions are super cheap in which in Bitcoin Cash they are, I do not need to save a few bytes/satoshis, this scaling solution is not needed as we haven't nearly reach the limitation of on-chain scaling. The benefit of saving a few bytes is completely lost in the learning curve of learning a new transaction format when the current one works

The post was meant as a running example of how innovation becomes easier with the right platform to stand on. The platform in this case being Flexible Transactions.
I have to say I do disagree on one point, the last example is a game changer for some usecases. Yours.org uses on-chain transactions for payments and even for you paying for your comment. To combine the many incoming tiny payments into my wallet can be done significantly cheaper (smaller) with the idea of the "repeat last signature" tag from the article. This can make a 3KB transaction for 30 inputs become 120 bytes.
If what we want is the 5 Billion people on planet Earth using Bitcoin Cash, then I think that is a relevant advantage. Don't you?
