As a mixup, it's only a little more gimmicky than Flesh Step + assist. But it's also just useful as a way to get in instantly without leaving yourself minus on block like Bypass xx Scalpels does. However, I agree that the reasons people have for preferring P>K are stronger than for K>P (or at the very least they feel stronger about them), so if we had to choose one I'd be fine with changing it back to P>K. I've been living with it for years, it's not a big deal for me to just continue living with it. Maybe I'll just practice that negative edge technique for doing assist call + special. I can't speak for the others who agreed with the K>P switch though.
