I can see this being very useful, and I agree that it should be relatively easy to update a small number of files (primitives, mostly). However, care does have to be taken, and there may in fact be one more useful setting, which would be semi-flat. (I'm not sure of a good term for this setting.) A box primitive that doesn't have edge lines on all edges would be semi-flat, as would similar rect primitives. The box/rect itself is always flat, but it may adjoin curved surfaces, in which case the surface normals for those curved surfaces should be pulled to match the box's/rect's surface normals.

Take a part like 33243, for example, and look at the first rect3.dat in the file. This rect3.dat demonstrates what I mean by semi-flat. The correct surface normals for the rect itself are fixed (perpendicular to the rectangle). However, the curved surface that meets it then needs to have its normals adjusted to match those where the two meet.
