Did medium and large format vanish when APS came out?

The popularity of medium and large format started dropping as 35mm film improved. I think it's a similar situation with smaller sensors vs. 35mm sensors.

All this is based on the assumption that 'smaller is better' so therefore everyone wants smaller. Of course a camera that has to be trucked around would be too large, but really, for many of us, a DSLr is not so terribly big, and we like the handling and controls that the smaller cameras just do not offer.
