Here's my photography-centric answer. How often do you need to do this? Pretty much just once for the full collection. Maybe the equivalent once every few years.

Adobe should more properly label it something such as [EF 17-40mm f/4 L (1.3X APS-H)]. While ...

You now can! With the 'Max 2019 Photography Releases' one of the improvements to Lightroom Classic is the ability to export the same image multiple times. Just by selecting the exports you wish to run.
