Huh? even if a 35mm SLR's output at ISO1600 is almost as good as that at ISO100, if its ISO100 is insufficient for the task at hand then its versatility is nil.

I thought that was what you meant by versatility in creation of the final image, as if it is simply by flexibility in situations in which it can function (in terms of focal range and ISO setting), 35mm vs APS-C vs m43 becomes a matter of whether clean, medium-sized prints of black cats in coal mines are more valuable than candid grab shots on the street and images from events with "no professional cameras allowed" policies in place, rather than a de facto victory for the 35mm format.
