Why equivalence in 35mm terms? It's such an old point of reference. (Been there.)

Because it was a common frame of reference for those coming from 35mm.

The truth is that most don't actually know the AOV of any 35mm lens in degrees. Ask them to quick tell you which lens captures a vertical or horizontal 90° AOV.
