FF cameras give you a wider envelope of shooting conditions - for example a wider choice of DOF (depending on the lens, of course) and lighting conditions under which you can get the same shot.

No to all of the above, answer the question? dof blur is all acheivable now in post, the envelope you talk about is in your head.

You can level the playing field a bit with software blurring, but it's very difficult to use for some kinds of subjects such as the one below and it can result in some very unnatural looking edges.

Sean, that's an aps-c image, its a breeze with OOC m43 to do that, the point with m43 and really I am talking the OMD is the IBIS and primes.

I didn't say you couldn't take the picture below with M43 (which is closer to APS-C than FF), I used that image as an example of a subject for which its difficult to use software to blur the background.   You basically said "FF is irrelevant for shallow DOF because you can do it with software".   The image is an example of the kind of subject for which the software approach is very problematic.
