To some people, that is just part of the art of photography

I agree with your post with respect to art photography. However, if one is doing macro photography for scientific purposes, aperture-related diffraction is absolutely something that must be kept in mind - any aperture choice is a compromise, and focus stacking doesn't work so well with moving subjects e.g. live insects.

Best wishes,

Absolutely. You always have to seek the best possible balance between depth of field, and no more diffraction than absolutely needed. That is true for macro, as well as for art.
