I can understand manufacturers meeting demand; after all, it is in their best interest to do so. However, if the novice/first time camera buyer is left with the impression resolution is the only specification that matters, they will see no reason to shop in the mid-range where many of us want to shop.

You know, and I know that there is more to good camera performance than the sensor resolution, or the high ISO performance, or the lens. Each part adds to the performance of the whole. But if new camera buyers aren't made aware about this, they will see little or no value in spending the extra money for better quality parts that "don't matter."

It's not just new camera buyers though. People buy all kinds on things based on what they see in the glossy brochure, and don't have any real idea what it is they're buying.

Be it cars with lots of BHP, computer processor speeds, or camera sensor resolution. The punter very often has no idea what it is they really should be looking for.
