Maybe in the past. But in my opinion not anymore. Especially the Olympic ITT title. One having one or two real shots in the whole career. And cyclist in general taking it seriously these days. All in all if such title was not all that important in the past. And as you say was considered a level below. This changed. These days you can't go past Olympic or WC ITT title and dismiss it as being a level below. It's hard to win such title and when you do you should and will get the praise.

Difficulty winning does not equal prestige.

Wout Van Aert easily passed the chance to probably win Worlds TT in favor to being one of the contenders for Road Race.
That's level below...

Evenepoel didn't, though. And the expression when Foss became the boss is telling:

Becoming a WC ITT champion. That is a top tier title/event.
His reaction. haha. I really like that video. Thanks for the video tho. You made me smile. I was tired of searching for the https://isaccurate.com/best-polish-translation-services website online because I want to hire a translator writer who will translate a few books for me regarding my study work and it is not available in my Polish language.
His reaction. haha
