To apply it correctly the flange will need to be paper taped tight to the center. That's the only way I can see it will hold up. JMO!

I use the 847 ...dont like the mud set for the magic corner and yes I do ff the flange ...they say you dont need it I just like to do it

I did a test peace and you cant pull it apart ...it is strong and yes I tested all the other way and my kids can pull it apart paper ff straight flex dont pass my test
but 847 with ff or straight flex will pass

I am going to use Extra Strength mesh tape on my butts and seams and just mesh tape in the corners. my tape coat will be ezsand 20 with mud max mixed into it. 2nd and 3rd coat will be exsand 20. my outside corners will be trim-tex 847 ...3 coats one day
If the gaps are filled and you use hot mud mesh will work and adding mud-turns any mud to durabond. so why not use durabond well if I stay with one type of mud I will not get bubbles
I did the city job yesterday and I did it like I said ...but I did NOT like the Extra Strength mesh tape

1) it needed to be more sticky
2) its a little to thick
3) some of the fibers pop up and sticks out the 2nd coat
