Yeah, I remember that was a concern. Does anybody remember exactly why? IIRC it was considered complicated, yet non-positional files have been supported and standard in Unix commands since before most of us were born so I have a hard time understanding that argument.
Using non-positional files as illustrated in https://flashrom.org/Per_region_file_arguments#Use_cases enables us to treat chip-sized files and region-sized files with the same, intuitive syntax without added mode flags or inconsistent use of -i/-r/-w/-v as in other proposals.
