Thus, I see no reason not to use the word "equivalent" to describe photos that have the same perspective, framing, DOF, shutter speed, and display size even when other elements of IQ are not necessarily the same.

'Equivalent' does not have the narrow meaning that you may prefer it to have.

I had this very conversation only yesterday.
GB: "Addition goes like this: you add two numbers and the result is 5."
U: "What? It depends on the numbers, the result can be anything."
GB: "The numbers are 2 and 3. It says so on my blog."
U: "What if the numbers are 2 and 4?"
GB: "Why am I constantly being misrepresented? The result is 5 because the numbers are 2 and 3!"
U: "Have you considered making up a name for the process of adding these particular numbers, to distinguish from addition in general?"
GB: [googles addition and cuts and pastes definition from online dictionary] "Is there something else you want me to explain?"
U: [goes to bed]
