I'm making a case that "equivalent aperture" for equivalent photo over the different sensors is less useful than "equivalent aperture" that would give you different look and feel for your photo.

The whole thing about 'equivalent' images is that they will look pretty much the same, therefore they'll have the same 'look and feel'. In fact, that's one of the uses of equivalence. If you see a a picture, with EXIF, which you like the 'look and feel' of, but your camera has a different sensor size, then you know the settings for your camera to get that 'look and feel' (and they'll be different from the settings of the shot you saw).
