While that may seem important, it isn't.

Stopping down more will increase DoF more. True. But the increase is from "nothing" to "next to nothing".
You will still need to change your way of thinking about how to get everything in focus that must be in focus. DoF will not be the solution.

What stopping down in (futile) attempts to get everything inside DoF will achieve is a rather huge drop in image quality.
Even the best, special purpose lenses (like Luminars) should only be stopped down moderately to maintain image quality at an acceptable level.

So a good thing, in a way, that stopping down will not produce enough DoF anyway.
