The effect of camera shake is format independant.

Not in my experience. Larger cameras are heavier, longer lenses with
much longer hoods are more affected by the wind, heavier tripods are
needed, and so on.

That is true

Good enough

Many people believe that small format cameras are more sensitive. They are
not.

They are, all thing considered.

Many things may affect camera shake. Like mirror/shutter slap, weight, grip etc. But a 1 mm movement with a 12 MP P&S camera will have the same blurring effect as a 1 mm movement with a 12 MP FX camera.
