I think you're exaggerating here, since phase-detect AF SLRs have been working pretty well for professional use for about the past 25 years. The fact that fine tuning is often possible for specific combinations, or that some cameras happen to be out of calibration or otherwise have QC issues, is really not an argument "against" DSLRs. With a phase-detect DSLR, you have the choice of using either 1) a PDAF system for following fast moving subjects with reasonable accuracy or 2) live view and CDAF (or MF) for static subjects with critical accuracy. At present, you can get a mirrorless body with much faster CDAF but much more limited PDAF (if at all), so I'd have to say the DSLR is more "versatile" in this respect.

*Some DSLRs are very good for sports, birds and fast action. Not all of them. Some of them have trouble giving you reliable focus at all especially in low-light conditions.
