The only ability I see the fast lenses provide was actually a disadvantage that happened to become a feature, and that is shallow DoF, allowing for separation of subject from the background.

how is it a disadvantage when you can stop the lens down?

The purpose of designing larger apertures was to get more light in. The shallow DoF is a side effect or a by product of doing so.

Indeed, they both go hand-in-hand. This is a cornerstone of Equivalence.

I am sure the designers would like to have more light in without larger apertures. If they could they would.
