From a practical standpoint, i agree with most of your comments except for the ones that refer to the fact that the Fuji has no anti-aliasing filter.  C of C and DOF are the result of mathematical equations that do not take the media (film or sensor) quality into consideration. It would seem that from the equation standpoint alone, the only variables  that apply are format size (film or sensor), focal length and lens opening (F stop). See the formulae below as copied from:

The print medium (or any other type of display) comes into play through the 'acceptable sharpness'. Acceptable sharpness also depends on the individual, so CoC can vary quite a bit between people, applications, and desired end results.

Indeed, Fuji is quite conservative in its DoF calculation. I have suggested in the past to make it possible for the user to set the CoC in the camera. That way, one can adjust the DoF scale to one's liking. I highly doubt that Fuji will provide such a feature, though... In the meantime, one has to resort to tables or cell-phone apps.
