I just don't think anyone would flirt with or distinguish the sister or friend of the woman he is interested in, unless he is a cad, or a dolt... ;-) In a society where pre-courtship and courtship rituals were a very important part of the marriage market, someone who behaved like that would end up raising expectations in the wrong quarters (take Cap. Wentworth, for instance).
And I don't agree that Col. Brandon's friendship with Elinor can be comparable to Henry's flirtatious behavior with Maria.
