So you never use autobrakes?

When did wheel brakes become flight controls?

I don't know if you're being sarcastic, but the brakes are totally a flight control. Not every plane is a tricycle with a steerable nosewheel, and differential brakes have given me the yaw authority to keep me and the student on the runway many times.

And obviously that has NOTHING to do with the blended flight control mode on an Airbus.

And you're talking to a guy with thousands of hours of tailwheel time who currently flys competition aerobatics in some pretty snappy conventional geared hot rods.

That being said auto brakes provide a deceleration rate that if they are not doing and adequate job you can manually override them at any time. Which is not the case with the blended flight control mode on an Airbus. Just saying.

Correct.

But I think you might have just given "some nerd in Toulouse" a new idea...

Technically wheel brakes are not primary or secondary flight controls.
