Correct me if I'm wrong, but I was taught in college that the reason the cable is not flat is becaue it designed to have alot of twists to help reduce attenuation.
I remember learning that CAT6 had more twists than CAT5, giving it better tolerance to attenuation.
Then for areas that could trigger higher attenuation, they created STP (Shielded Twisted Pair) to provide additional protection.

So the point is, the flat cable is not logical for ethernet.
Sure, flat cables are good for console cables, as that's normally the only scenario where a flat cable is used.
I've never deployed a flat cable in production or in testing.
I can honestly say, I do not understand why these cables exist.
You are correct, however, for home use it should be okay so long as EMF, radio frequencies, and other forms of interference isn't high. Routing the cables away from appliances, other cables including power lines, and other items that may cause interference would be best with these cables, but if one were to route through the ceiling/attic or crawl space, regular style cables run through PVC pipes are highly suggested.

Does anyone here have any advice on what to do when the cable needs to cross a hallway? Do you stick it to the ceiling?

these flat cables make it really easy to put it just under the baseboard, maybe even pull up the carpet on the edge. That's what I did.
unless your hallway is really long. I was able to go around the hallway with it
and since it's flat, you could even go around door trim. and you can barely see it, if it all

run it through the drywall into the attic and back down. it is a major do-it-yourself project but when you figure that out you feel like a pro and can run anything to the attic and wall

Hang on wall close to ceiling (use 3M Command clips if you don't want to mess up your walls or paint)
