It would not matter.  For thin formats, the format flags get setup during the 'linkage' to dynamic. If you wanted to add Flags like these to the format structure in the format file to pacify some issue-finder script, then go right ahead. But it does not matter what flags you add to the format structure in the file. The flags that actually get 'used' will have nothing to do with what was static set at compile time.  The reason this late setup is done, is because dynamic will know if unifies case should be used or not. In dynamic it is always used, unless the input hash uses base-64
