Would you calculate the arc-flash level at the panel/receptacle?
Would you 'assume' that the instantaneous MCB would reduce the available level to 0?
Would you just take the cal level whatever is at the MCC?

NFPA 70E makes no such claim. You are dealing with people's reluctance to follow the requirements of NFPA 70E that say a risk analysis must be performed.
Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.
