funny Fuji , the practical real life IQ of the Fuji is not any better than that of the OM-D based system.

I own both - the Fuji IQ is better. It's not that difficult to see even on web sized pictures. It doesn't mean the E-M5 is terrible but you do get that bit extra from the Fuji.

IQ should be evaluated as a whole system and MFT has much better selection of better primes , thus the OM-D system might win over the Fuji based system in many FLs.

Agreed - but not in the FLs that are covered. The 14, 35 and 18-55 are arguably superior to their M43s (rough) equivalents.

and do not forget slow and inaccurate aF of the X-E1 makes its PRACTICAL real life IQ can be worse.

Not really - it isn't that slow anymore. You just adapt your shooting style.

and to get the same DOF at the same shutter speed , Fuji has to to crank up ISO or OM-D gets faster SS, so naturally deeper DOF at aperture to aperture of the OM-D can be good.

But it isn't really a problem to crank up ISO on the Fuji cameras, at all. I don't think it's harder to get DOF on the Fuji if that's what you are trying to say.
