The analogy between film size and sensor size breaks down on so many levels.

The larger magnification needed for small format film like 135 or 110 was a problem because of grain, so if you needed large prints you used medium format or bigger. This isn't really comparable to the situation today.

The practical advantage to a 135 format sensor over an APS sized one or a four-thirds one are often over-stated; and if you're happy with the exposure options available to you on your APS or 4:3 or CX or Q camera, the sensor size isn't really a reason to up-size.
