Jeff, this is exactly the way I feel about it (I think I'll do what you mention and set C2 for my flash starting point).  This subject, like "lens protection" filters and Av vs. Tv settings, seems to generate a lot of heat with little information.  I started photography in an era when flashbulbs were the general rule (I lusted for a Honeywell strobe and a Braun was just a pipe dream) and back when I was shooting weddings (on film) I used Vivitar 283s and had a Stroboframe to get the flash off the camera but I still appreciate the on-board flash both for fill outside and as a convenience inside. I probably use it more than I do my 580EXII for that reason.  I also appreciate the ability to use it as a trigger sometimes if I feel like a more elaborate set-up.

To each, their own.
