Agree on this too. I use my gravel bike as my everything but MTB bike. All road days, all trail days, some of both, some singletrack, and even multiday gravel tours with rack and panniers.

One other differece is gravel bikes seem to come with slightly wider gearing options. With popularity of 1x growing, those lines are blurring.
