Fact #1 - I don't think any of that is "more difficult" on flats. Its different. You can pick the bike up differently if you're clipped in than you can if you aren't. And if you're going from learning on clips, to flats, that's going to be apparent; techniques learned on flats can be translated to clips, but not necessarily the other way. But its not harder, or easier. There's just more ways to do certain things clipped in.  Fact #2 - er, what?  Fact #3 - agree, but see also: Fact #4 Fact #4 - Riding clips provides a continual learning curve that allows the rider to gain ever deeper insight into the subtleties of the form.
