Obviously. However, it is still a useful principle to apply in general. Blocked shadows don't look so nice, either.

We're talking about shooting wide open with a fixed min shutter speed.

If you don't increase your exposure ie larger aperture and/or leave the shutter open longer, you aren't taking in any more light and your shadows aren't going to be any less blocked.

The goal of ETTR is to increase your SNR and take advantage of the increased tonal range farther to the right of the histogram. Increasing ISO does not accomplish that.

Again, yes, obviously. You've missed the point entirely.
