Well, not completely -- there is value in large monitors for other reasons.

But for me, looking at a 42" screen at a 25 degree angle looks fine -- I'd rather have the objects larger than small -- but I also have large fingers.

When we see the DAW developers redesign (or offer a touchscreen version of) their interface, then a higher resolution monitor would be great.

Perhaps software developers need to start developing GUI's similar to how web developers have been doing -- a "responsive" GUI!!
