You're absolutely correct if someone is using both.

If the optical sight is working, you ignore the BU sights.
To the world, you may be only one person. but to one person you may be the world.

Guess I'm weird like many others. After you cowitness the rear BUIS does fold down out of your field of vision while the fixed front isn't a problem for me, in fact I like it there since it doesn't slow me down.

Also, if you bottom third cowitness you don't have to look through the rear aperture even if it's up.
The biggest issue with assembling an AR isn't so much getting the parts together right - it's getting the right parts together.
