I don't think I'm missing the point. There's no one size fits all rule here, like in a lot of things. I wanted a dry suit and a lifejacket...I chose Crewsaver as a brand and rang them for advice. I told them size, shape, weight, boat and cruising waters. They advised 150N. They're in the business, I respect their opinion

Different people, different scenarios, sometimes different solutions...

I use a Tornado drysuit and a crewsaver 275 life jacket along with sprayhood and carry a McMudo max PLB on my belt I feel you need that kit if you go over board.
If you have improved floatation then you can worry about getting back on board when you get rescued.

I also wear a Geko helmet

In the summer I dont use the dry suit
