Certainly knowing all the runes should imply knowing all the flavors (and may well work already). But knowing all the flavors wouldn't necessarily mean knowing all the runes.

In the basic case having that cloak describes as 'of Elvenkind' adds flavor but doesn't in itself indicate what its properties are.

And for some egos like cloaks of Aman, they can get a random property so knowing that it's a cloak of Aman shouldn't mean that all the runes about it are known.

I think it's working as designed and expected. The only change that could happen I think is that knowing all flavors automatically identifies the 'fixed' runes for items when they are first seen

I actually find I quite like knowing flavours but not runes.

It's quite thematic for more complex egos: "Hey that looks like one of the legendary weapons of Gondolin. Cool! No idea what all those runes mean but it must be pretty powerful" but not for "This looks to be a robe of resist fire. I wonder what that rune means?"

Personally I'd be happy to leave it as it is
