I don't see why not. It would be a natural move on Nikon's part mating existing components and would solve multiple issues at once. People gripe about D800 file size and low fps. This would remedy both of those issues while maintaining very high IQ. Furthermore, because it is using existing (off the self)  components, development costs would be low. As an engineer, I would find this solution a no-brainer.

It cracks me up how the True D700 Successor has changed over time. At first it was 12 MP with better DR and high ISO IQ. Then it inched up to 16 to match the D7000. There was brief talk about 18 MP. Now it is 24 MP, which would have outraged the True D700 people initially.

I am not hung up on exact MP count. I suggested the D600 sensor because it's off the self, see above reply.
