Are there any cases of multi-dimensional arrays? Because those
actually have semantic meaning outside of sizeof(), just in things
like adding offsets.

Eg something like

int fn(int a[][10])

ends up being equivalent to something like

int fn(int (*a)[10])

and "a+1" is actually 40 bytes ahead of "a", so it does *not* act like
an "int *".

(And I might have screwed that up mightily - C multidimensional arrays
and the conversions to pointers are really easy to get confused about.
Which is why I hope we don't have them)
