handlebar/ saddle difference is only one part of the equation because it does not take into account BB drop, not to mention ETT and reach/ stack differences.
I'm about 6ft3.

No frame in mind just yet. The used market is very slow right now.

Looking for a slightly shorter chainstay length at 425mm, slightly longer top tube and reach at 590mm and 400mm respectively, obviously will need sufficient BB clearance as I wish to use 180mm crank arms, and slightly less fork rake. Sounds to me like I'll need a gravel bike with extra tire clearance .
