Would it be so totally wrong to simply say that at smaller apertures everything (including the way close dust spots) becomes more in focus? Sure makes a working model for me anyway.

At smaller apertures the depth of field is larger, so that's another way of saying it. It's just that "depth of field" usually refers to things outside the camera while this is inside.

So, no. Not totally wrong. Just not the usual way of saying it.
