Yes, enlargement factor and desired print resolution are the only variables affecting the selection of a CoC diameter for DoF calculations (assuming you have considered viewing distance when specifying your desired print resolution). And they are the only variables affecting the f-Number at which diffraction will begin to inhibit a desired resolution.

What about the resolution of the sensor/system? Think it's necessary to take the max potential resolution in account too if we want to know at which point the resolution will be visibly affected. Both when calculating DoF and 'diffraction limit' at 100% view (equivalent to a large print). Guess that app. 2x pixel size/pitch is 'appropriate' in both cases.
