A different kind of equivalence

Okay, fair cop, I should have just left it at crop-to-zoom,

If you are crop-to-zoom such that the same lens, same f-stop, and same sensor area is used to get the same framing, then pixel density and sensor noise design are the distinguishing differences to the final image.  Everything else will be the same (DOF, diffraction, shot noise, etc.)  so likely you'd want to optimize for maximum pixel density.

If you are crop-to-zoom using different lenses and different sensor areas, then it's impossible to make any general statement as there are too many variables.
