...because a 5 µm pixel has a area of 5x5 = 25 µm² and
a 6 µm pixel has a area of 6x6 = 36 µm²,
which is 44% more area and therefore significant.

Yes - my brain told my fingers to write 20% wider but they wrote 20% more area.

Or - something like that.

But - no matter - I still dont thing 15 MP will be noisier than 10 MP per area sensor. It might be, but I would be surprised. I still think the greatest difference is that the 10 MP might get aliasing over the entire sensor if you use a good lens, something that is difficult with 15 MP. And ... that talks in favour for 25 MP IMHO Aliasing might look good at pixel level, but hardly is an advantage for printing.
