The "dirt" accumulated in the filter helps filter out smaller particles. I've never seen any flow rate analysis to support paper filters being worse than K&N.

Yes the dirt helps, but once they're dirty you're better off with a paper filter at that point.

Yes flow rate analysis have been done using K&N (or oiled cotton), foam filters (ITG filters), and paper.
