Thanks to all who responded. The column flange was repaired as I had proposed, heat-straightening and plate reinforcing. I know, it may be too much for those who believe reinforcing was not necessary, but I did not feel comfortable leaving it unreinforced. It was in such a critical location and the cost of repair was almost nothing to the fabricator (he had to come back to the site to do some missing welds anyway). For those who were interested to know, the thickness of the flange was 7/16" (W14X26) and the dent was about 3/8" at the tip and it died down within about 2 inches above and below.

Unless I'm mistaken, the case that generated this discussion seemed about that straightforward.
