On my home network, the switches making up the wired portion of the network are not managed nor are they routers.    The mesh router/APs are routers, I suspect that the two Ethernet ports on each node are routed.   I suspect that most home and SME switches are not routers.

I suspect this approach might be better for medium to large enterprise style networks where the switches are more capable.

Agree.

At least as much as it needs to deal with a mix of what I will call routers with a lot of ports, and generic L2 switches.
