You need to keep in mind that we are not talking about really fast apertures here. The f/1.2 on APS-C format is equivalent to just f/1.8 on FF -- hardly a superfast lens. Testing with focal reducers also seem to indicate there isn't a problem going up to f/1.0 on APS-C.

Can you cite a source? I had the opposite impression.

I'm not sure what you are asking about and what your impression is. It's a trivial math, equivalent lenses are scaled by the crop factor. The 50/1.8 lens on FF has the same properties as 34/1.2 lens on APS-C, provided all other things being equal. Focal reducers are a living demonstration of that.
