One possible exception might be the t/s lenses. I don't know but would be glad for some input.

Yes, you could use the shift lenses without shifting on a larger sensor. The 17mm and 24mm allow a 1.55 times larger frame, the 45mm and 90mm allow a 1.35 times larger frame in each dimention. The corner quality and vignetting of course are concerns, but this is possible. However, with manual focus and no shift, this is hardly better than using a third party medium format lenses with an adaptor.
