Hardly, not everyone needs that excessive size to choke up storage space & CPU processing cycles when processing RAW files.

Storage is cheap, and the practical differences between 24 MP and 36 MP are not that great.  Want to spare your CPU?  Reduce the file sizes as a first step in Photoshop before doing any editing.  Don't want to do that?  Well there you go then, because most people when given the choice will choose to work on the larger file rather than the smaller one.

The 'storage is cheap' line is a very tired defense.

On the contrary. Much used, but each time it does the job with vigour.
