I'm afraid I miss your point and/or you apparently miss mine.
Most people buy a bike for a purpose, be that to be super-competitive in professional events, ride to work, tour the country/world, or just to get from point A to point B. Or one of several other reasons.
The purpose should also determine whether CF, alloy or steel is more suitable.
When you buy a brand, apart from the above considerations, you are really just buying a frame (not necessarily built by that company, an assembly of foreign parts, and in some cases, a reputation.
So, if we look at the above bikes, to all extents & purposes we have 2 bikes that can be riden on the road at speed. Apart from the brand and the framing materials, both would have similar quality if not identical brand running gear, brakes, cranks, pedals and fittings.
So to use your obtuse comparison, we aren't comparing an axe and a sledgehammer, but a very expensive axe with a reasonably priced axe, both of which will chop down the same tree. Whether one will do it better than the other depends on the axeman.

I think the very point I was making is hidden there in your translation. Thanks.
