Why exactly should I be worried about achieving equivalence between the two..??

You shouldn't be concerned about equivalence between these two.

It's weird that so many [intentionally] misrepresent Equivalence saying that they should be shooting Equivalent photos on different formats, even though Equivalence *explicitly* says quite the opposite. It's as if someone said to multiply mi/hr by 1.6 to get km/hr, and they said, "Why should I drive the same speed in Europe as I do in the US?"

So now with a real world example, it suddenly doesn't matter any more...???

With that particular example neither shutter speed, nor aperture are critical, and there is more than enough subject illumination to get sufficient total light for an acceptable level of image noise.  In this situation, the camera settings aren't important at all.

The fact that there are some situations where camera settings are not critical does not mean that this is true for all situations.
