I think the problem is that you have to withdraw from benzos first in order to use flumazenil safely - it could cause convulsions (not to mention extreme distress) in people who are dependent on them. A similar strategy is sometimes used with the opioid receptor antagonist naltrexone as a rapid detox from, you guessed it, opiates. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naltrexone

With benzos, there's still the problem of cognitive impairment and amnesia to contend with though, tolerance to which also will be reset by flumazenil.
