I would guess that B&H's primary motivation is to avoid a lot of returns.

Bingo! And that's all I think it is. To attribute more to it--especially anything dubious--is absurd.

Someone mentioned the Leica and Hassy, but the point is here that most who buy the D800E haven't used either of those cameras, and are probably very likely to come up from other Nikon DSLRs.

I can completely see B&H's position and approach on this one. You can always keep your "E" order in. They figure if they haven't talked you out of it--because you knew exactly what you wanted, and what you were getting--then you're probably much less likely to return it.

Returns are expensive to deal with. Returns are a pain in the ass to deal with.

This is all about taking steps to make sure only those who know what they're getting get the "E," and don't come running back with a return in hand at the first sight of moiré or false color.
