Easy to remove DoF - impossible to add back DoF
2

You can always remove DoF from an image just like you can always soften an image.  You can NOT add back DoF to a single image though (with image stacking you can, but very limited).

As you point out, rather than trying to get razor thin DoF and possibly ruining the focus (wrong focal point), it is easier to concentrate on getting a sharp subject in focus, and processing the DoF and softness how you want later.  Heck, you can even choose how you want the bokeh to look with the right software.
