[Oliver Peters] "Cut in X and send a flat file to AE. Split the clip at the cuts and you are ready to go."

Yes, but doesn't that workflow break down when you are dealing with transitions between clips in your NLE. Once Automatic Duck came along, it drastically changed my workflow (for the better). I was never comfortable with flattening, and then having a bunch of segments. Having that ability to get my timing and basic motion down in my NLE, and then bringing it into AE and individually control my elements of each layer is important to me (and maybe nobody else). Granted, I've done a great deal of short-form in this manner. I doubt it would work well for a doc.
