Concrete diaphragms

Title: Concrete diaphragms

If a concrete diaphragm doesnt meet the requirements of ASCE7-05 section 12.3  to be idealized as rigid, then what happens?  Do you envelope rigid & flexible analyses, as has been suggested for wood?  It seems like it should always perform rigidly, even in an all-concrete structure. 

thanks,
