Most people serious about photography already know this! Haven't you ever wondered why it is pretty much impossible to get any kind of bokeh on a point and shoot even though the lens is usually an F2 or so?????

Sensor size has nothing to do with it, it is the focal length in combination with aperture.
This concerns depth of field, bokeh is more a quality of a lens.

ummm it's just MUCH MUCH simpler to say the depth of field changes with sensor size.

You tell me how in one sentence, to explain why with subjects framed identically on a full frame and a 1.6x crop camera with identical lens the depth of field will be different?

it is the focal length in combination with aperture.

AND?! see even you smart man miss key variable, focusing distance. The sensor sizes changes the focusing distance you will need to use to get equivalent framing and this changes depth of field. It's one step removed and vastly more understandable to just say depth of field is affected by sensor size, since in usage it is.
