It doesn't decrease the DOF at all since that's a physical distance independent of viewing size.

Sorry, wrong answer.

Magnifying magnifies the blur circles too, which makes circles visible that aren't visible without the magnification. In other words, it changes the CoC, which changes the DOF. At high magnification, the blur circles are bigger and easier to see, thus you have less DOF.

See? These are just differently magnified views of the same image.

If you have a very narrow scope. People doing near or fully static photography, for example certain macro work, have valued a good LV implementation for this very reason for years.

For a given print size and viewing distance, neither of which are known at capture time.
