In other words: it's so affordable it's not very useful as a portrait lens for rule of third compositions. In fact it's so affordable it's not useful as a portrait lens at all as the bokeh is really poor.

A bit over the top, wouldn't you say?

If the EF version could take portraits, then the RF surely can.

Chances are the bokeh of the RF lens is worse compared to the EF lens.  If you don't need bokeh, there's no need to use a prime at all, so.....  that's what i call "not useful".
