Absolutely! But it really comes down to versatility. If I'm taking a portrait on a FF camera and want the compression of an 85mm with a DOF at f1.8, I'm not going to get it out of a M43 camera. I can have my subject take a few steps forward to get the same amount of background blur, but that still won't allow me to get the same variations on my subject such as having tack sharp eyes and slightly OOF ears. Plus increasing the distance between you and your subject or your subject and background changes the composition and is not always possible.

I could just move my guitar back a bit farther to get it as OOF on M43 as FF or APS-C, but then the guitar would be much smaller totally changing the images composition.

Yup it's all very minor compromises in the end, the same could be said for FF when Comparing it to Mr and so on and so on.

Everything is a compromise at one point or another. Really, neither format is better, they just have different properties. It's more about preference than anything else.
