I have considered that but gave up with minimal investigation because it
seemed harder then this solution.  It's possible imenu did actually have
this functionality sometime before 1998 (see commit

The doc-view imenu-flatten stuff was added 2022-09-28 (see commit
fe002cc8ce38efb256a2a60660ee626c2b2cdf81).  This makes me feel like
maybe that person thought adding it to imenu directly would be hard.

I might at some point investigate doing that but likely not soon.  Also
if that feature was ever added, it would still be compatible with the
patch I sent.  For those reasons, I advocate my patch should still be
applied even though it is clear that it is a sub-optimal solution.
