Well I'm certainly not going the internegative route, there'd be two of them, right? If your example effective aperture is magnification based is it expressing the distance the diffracted rays have to travel, hence the amount they will diverge? If that's so then keeping the aperture as large as possible would help, yes? Maybe it's a job for the uber-magical 105mm f/2.5 Nikkor, wide open.

Some place in the 11x to 20x they will be equal. I would put my Peak / Omega in a corner and see for myself. Glass carrier required.
I used to use my 50 4.0 Takumar preset for anything. It was as good as my Schneider componons.
good luck with your enlargement !
i hope you have a large tray, sink ( with sponges ) or wallpaper troughs to develop the print in
i used to regularly make 16x20 ( or larger ) enlargements from 35mm negatives they looked fine.
i was using a durst 601 and projecting on the floor and wall ...
grain is un noticeable if you don't have your nose to the print, and depending on the film
sometimes there is no grain at all.
i haven't used the film you mention, but i am sure you will know if you like it enlarged as big as you
expect to enlarge it ... or not.
again ... good luck !
