I do agree, but I have to dissent on the Papal States getting converted to Sunni 'often' - they're the state closest to being outright hardcoded into a single religion, and it takes a significant amount of gamey gameplay to get there as them.Catholicism is one the few religions\denominations in EU4 that has no single built-in combat modifier except for situational crusades. Not only this is unbalanced or (for some people) misrepresents the religion (which is a slippery slope by itself), but it's also quite ahistorical to see how majority of players, that do not RP intentionally, switch to Protestant or Reformed because it's a way better choice.
In a game where WARFARE is the bread and butter and is the #1 gameplay feature there is little to no reasons to stay Catholic. Even The Papal State is often converted to Sunni to get the desired +10% Land morale.
