The neck angle is lower so the strings are more perpendicular to the hand
Interesting. In my experience the right (and left) arm and hand adjust to a wide variety of configurations because there are enough degrees of freedom - but if you keep the RH setup static while lowering the neck, if anything that would make the strings less perpendicular to the hand. Maybe I misunderstand what you are referring to.
You mean in the away-toward-body sense as in you can see less of the fretboard than with classical posture? That's true, though I never tilted the top of the guitar toward me anyway, for classical.
Actually in my experience and observations in flamenco the upper bout is used much less for support than in classical. It is more of a touch rather than rest/anchor or press and the forearm can slide (so the place of touch changes), especially with multi-string picado (scales).
