Yeah, Andy, great reminder. This info has been out there for years. In addition to the elasticity issue, I would add sidewall cracking to the list of possible producers of rapid deflation.

Rapid deflation is a much bigger issue on suv's because of their high center of gravity. You definitely DO NOT want to hit the brakes when a tire deflates. The vehicle will skworm on you, but remain calm and ride her out.
