not convinced about the decision to interpolate (and not describe how) the canon image to 36mp. That seems even less appropriate than downscaling the D800 down. Leaves you wondering how much of the difference is real versus the upscale.

Why would throwing information away from the bigger file to match the lower res camera be the better way?? By this method an 80mp medium format camera will only be 'marginally' more detailed than a 8mp 20D if you scaled it down.

You always scale the lower res camera up.

Nope, you scale the higher res camera down. It will still possess an advantage, since it starts with a lot more information.

That's how DXO does it for part of their test.
