110 film is to 35MM as M43rd is to FF?

The analogy between film size and sensor size breaks down on so many levels.

The larger magnification needed for small format film like 135 or 110 was a problem because of grain, so if you needed large prints you used medium format or bigger. This isn't really comparable to the situation today.

The practical advantage to a 135 format sensor over an APS sized one or a four-thirds one are often over-stated; and if you're happy with the exposure options available to you on your APS or 4:3 or CX or Q camera, the sensor size isn't really a reason to up-size.
