We could, but I wasn't touching on the subject, rather DoF. I was presenting a case where too much DoF can take away from isolation.

Actually you were suggesting the isolation was too much for an environmental shot.  That's simply a matter of choice and opinion.

But yes, inclusion or exclusion can be controlled, a benefit of larger sensors. Between size, weight, convenience, control (DoF) etc, I find APS-C to be the best compromise. And perhaps you can say, I appreciate its versatility.

Different people choose different compromises.  A former pro I know went from mostly medium format to mostly an iPhone after he retired - he says it's just more fun.
