When we look at what happens when cities actually reduce lane capacity, a significant share of traffic simply "disappears".

I'm not sure it's fair to say that it disappears. It is more likely that the traffic goes elsewhere and/or travels at different times. For the road(s) in question, whether it simply disappears or goes elsewhere doesn't matter. However, for other areas of the city, it does matter.

Although I imagine it would be very difficult, perhaps almost impossible to accomplish, it would be interesting to see data on what happened to the traffic on roads close to roads which either had lanes removed or added.
