Competent officials never suggest we are not using our integrity if we choose not to call a multiple foul (unless you are on this board of course). Double fouls are often called because two players are kind of being jerks, but we often call them when they do not fit the definition as one action clearly happened first, but we suggest it is a great "game management" tool.

I think "approximately" gives us the latitude to call a double even when one clearly happens first.

Multiple remains, and should remain, for the event where more than one player commits a flagrant foul at approximately the same time....don't let one off just because the other occurred.

I agree but we will have one player do something and clearly a delay and then the second player does something and there was a gap.

I get why it remains, but I have yet to see an appropriate time to call this. That does not mean that I will not see a time, I just do not think that time is coming anytime soon.
