I would say that formed/ punched forms can be unfolded ans they should be just make a flat sheet. could in such a case not created a kind of internal defeaturing be implemented? see for example in creo (around 7 minutes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3U_qi9z0yog
I don't completely agree that formed features should be able to be flattened.
In the same process the edges are lasered/punched and most formed features are added. For me, this indicates that the flat pattern should contain the formed features. Even if it is done in a secondary production step, you still want to know where they should be and then they are on the same page as the flat pattern.
But the proposal of jaisejames to be able to supress them at will is probably a good compromise.
