You haven't even scratched the surface. Wheat ramen is modern hardtack. Unlike actual hardtack though, its not cooked for a month and wont break your teeth if you eat it raw. Its not like an egg noodle, so biting into wheat ramen is not gonna break your teeth like crunching on your 1st grade macaroni opus.
2. when crushed to a fine powder, it can be used like breadcrumbs or meal
3. it is great used dry as a dipping snack, the airspace fills with sauces of all types better than bread or chip
4. it is not out of the question to use it with sweet things, nutella and ramen is _delicious_
5. the bag can serve as a flotation device for midgets (this can be culinary if the pot is big and a midget is doing the cooking)
6. the salt packet is mostly useless, except for altering the relative buoyancy of the midget
7. dip it in your coffee (not the midget)
What makes ramen inedible to people who can tolerate gluten, and who aren't diabetic, is the packet. Sea water is more nutritious, has less sodium, and a better flavor, and is definitely better for the midgets' skin. Bowl ramens are the only ones I eat with the included seasoning.
