Could it be this: The height to which the rear liftgate will fully open is supposed to be programmable (to avoid opening too high in low-ceiling garages, etc.). Did they also want to ensure the flipper glass would not be opened when the liftgate is raised?

Its redundant, if it "unlocks" the flipper glass the same thing can be accomplished by using the regular unlock buttons.

Re: how do you lift the glass on back cargo door?

It's because people were accidentally unlocking the flipper glass, and then wondering why they couldn't open the power liftgate. (they apparently don't look at their EVIC either).

Thanks to their stupidity, those of us with the latest fob lost the flipper glass button.

EXACTLY correct. People were bringing them in for warranty service!

On the WK the flipper glass will raise when the button is pressed. On the WK2 the weight of the wiper motor keeps it from automatically rising.
