People should probably pay more attention to the variations of the
documentary hypothesis, including the idea not about continuous documents
but some kind of amplification hypothesis. The existence of an independent E
has also been challenged by not a few scholars like, in the early days of
the 20th century Rudolph. E was not reckoned to  be a source by most
adherents of the Uppsala school either,  Things are very different from one
part to the next. What is valid for the flood story may not account for Gen
1-3. How the classic documentary hypothesis breaks down is clear from
Eissfeldt's HexateuchSynopse from 1922. Look at his analysis of Exod 1, for
example.
