Level-2 flags (masks) cannot be output products of the l2bin. The reasoning is that for a given binned output file pixel, you can have multiple source input files which contribute to the bin aggregate depending on the flag (mask) of the particular source input file. Once a file is binned, the connection between the source flags and their respective source pixels is lost, so flagging after binning would not be useful.
