Plenty of good gravel options out there with flat bars that aren't hardtail mountain bikes - they're different beasts.  Sizing/geo is definitely what you'd need to think the most about before you went swapping, though.  In my first look I said "But beware, the first person to joke about how “gravel bikes are just 90’s XC bikes” in the comments owes me a beer." I think the equivalent in this piece (especially in the wake of Mike's Wide Handlebars on Wednesday) is "Anyone who says 'Why don't you just get a hardtail?'" owes me a beer." ;)
