In terms of 'hyperfocal' focusing for things like landscape, it always baffles me why people would focus on something that is not the point of interest. For example, a 'landscape' scene with plenty of 'infinity' detail and some closer objects looks better to me (and perhaps others) when the small trees in the distance (infinity) are resolved very well; they need the extra resolution otherwise you won't be able to tell they are tiny trees. As objects get closer and bigger they can tolerate less resolution. In fact a very close tree can be pretty blurry and you can still tell it is a tree. This progression of a similar resolution for all objects in the scene works out just right when focused at infinity, not at the hyperfocal distance.
