What you have demonstrated is "equivalent field of view".  If that's all you are interested in, why not just say so?  Say you are demonstrating "equivalent field of view" and no one will have any problem with it, and it won't cause any confusion.

If you were interested in other meanings of eqivalence though, why didn't you try also shooting a FF image at ISO 640, 1/250, f4.0?  Do you not realize that would have looked even more equivalent?  If you had similar generation sensors, they would be almost indistiguishable in that case.

What you are doing here seems to me rather like writing a review trashing a movie you haven't watched or a book you haven't read.

I posted a clear demonstration that an f/2 aperture on a MFT sensor produces the same exposure as an f/2 aperture on a FF sensor. If you read this forum at all lately you would know that many people seem to doubt this simple fact.

If you and others want to twist what I wrote to make it sound like I don't understand the exposure triangle or like I was trying to say a 5D is the same as a GX1, that's your business.
