So, even in mirrorless systems it makes sense to talk about low light focus performance (because of the lens). And not about the front/back focus.

That's true. However, mirrorless provides the benefit of a usable bright screen even in very low light. I think that paradoxically causes some complaints about mirrorless low-light focus simply because the brighter screen encourages us to attempt focusing in lower light than before.

But it also provides alternate means of manual focusing, such as focus peaking, which I've found work quickly and marvelously in far lower light than a DSLR could have managed at all.
