What do you need more than 18MP for, other than bragging rights?

Yes there other reasons. Like, I have had customers requesting 30+ megapixels files in their RFPs.  They don't know, somebody told them about the D800 and the 36 megapixels. A 36 megapixels photos must be twice better than an 18 megapixels photo, so they request it.

BTW, notice that although the 36 megapixels is "twice better" than the 18mpx, they do not want to pay twice more for a "twice better" photo.

Sounds like some expectation management is required there...

No, these are RFPs, Request For Proposal. They state what they want and you (in this case me) have to quote a price for their requirements, and they made the 30 megapixles a requirement. No 30mpx, no work. I get around it when it's "landscapes" by doing panoramas and supplying the 50 to 100mpx photos.
