I personally buy Crystalline Flask when I want sustain, for health and mana, such as Jax who has high mana costs and no form of life-steal, or Singed who makes good use of it throughout the game due to his need consumption of mana via stacking Tear of the Goddess with his Poison Trail

Doran's Shield is more for when I have a match-up in which the other champion will probably bully me for a bit, so I need some protection early on, such as against Riven, since the passive is strong, or against an all AD team.

It's a good theorycrafting idea, but despite the mathematics, which are correct, and yes you can argue the flask is better, but in my opinion, it'll only be better for a small variety of champions in mid lane. Doran shield is going to be better.
