In this context it means that the important thing your chosen aperture decides is the depth of field and the total light it will provide.

I still think we will be stuck (?) with "f2.8" when dialing in camera settings though... adjusting an absolute aperture metric in mm (circumference, diameter, radius, mm^2 "area"?) on the camera would be a non-intuitive regression.  Or do you have thoughts on how it might be implemented?
