That axiom would hold true only if your output is reality, but it is not, it is a digital picture viewed on a digital screen (or less popular, print), an EVF or TV would be superior if it closer showed what your capture of the seen reality is. I don't care to see reality, I care to see what is captured. optical viewfinders don't even come close to that.

Your point is only valid if you are a JPEG only shooter who primarily views images on a low-res uncalibrated monitor. What's captured is 16-36 million 14-bit samples that can be realized as many thousands of different tone mappings of which your EVF shows exactly one.
