I really wish camera review sites could include resolution test done using some kind of robot hand or something that will emulate human hand movement/ shake.

What an absurd thing to want. If that's what you really want, just take the test photos and apply motion blur in Photoshop or something. Just make sure you apply the same amount as a function of picture height to each photo.

The same amount of movement will be done for testing different cameras that will emulate "typical" human hand movement at slower shutter speeds (say, 1/15, 1/30 sec etc.).

There's no such thing as typical human hand movement. Everyone moves their hands differently. Some of us can hold quite steadily, thank you very much. The 1/f rule, for example, is too conservative a guideline for me.

And then we will print the photos at same size, as well as keep printing bigger and bigger from the higher MP body until it has the same perceived resolution per inch (from same viewing distance - more like comparing 100% crops to understand how much cropping advantage the higher MP body has) as the lower MP body.

Knock yourself out. Is there something preventing you from doing so now?
