It's an interesting idea.  I suspect that in a lot of cases, the details of
the print (paper, printer, ink) will be more significant than the difference
between a high end digital camera image and a 35mm film image.  Especially
if the final size of the prints are limited to say A4.  Prints to larger
than A4 will require scanning from 35mm at more than 2700ppi, but I suppose
that's a question of categories as Yves has already suggested.

Personally I wish I could figure out a way to make money from my photos so I
could afford some of the gear which some other list members regularly use.
Although I'd settle for a few better lenses, a better film scanner and a
better printer! ;)  But I'll probably have to content myself with observing
people talking about their Mamiyas and Zeiss lenses and dream...
