Muzzle flip doesn't represent a real need, since it's not the flip that's the real problem; an improper grip is. A proper neutral grip allows the muzzle to return to the same point every time. Muzzle flip's rise & fall happens faster than most are able to shoot anyway, but a front sight that falls to a different position everytime it comes down will slow one down (assuming they're actually looking at the front sight) and/or degrade their accuracy.

Seems like more a trade-off than a net benefit. It's well-nigh impossible to confer a real net advantage when the trade-offs are essentially par. Compare, for instance speedloaders, full moons, etc. Compared to their benefit, there's little trade-off.
