Interesting.  What types of clients are specifying a 30 mp minimum file?

It already happened 3 times:

  • From 2 different businesses direct. 2 construction related firms 
  • Once from a designer doing work for a small store

So bid the job, and up-rez your 18mp image to 7500X5000 using convert and save in DPP.

Not a good business practice in my opinion.  I am not a pro but I would certainly want to be honest in my business dealings.

It's an arbitrary and capricious request.

Neither Canon's 18mp 1DX or Nikon's 16mp D4 flagship pro cameras qualify.

FWIW, before you are too critical of what I suggested, you should try it yourself and see what the results are.

No, I would not want to do business with you.  You have decided to use a trick to cover up and use lesser equipment because you believe the client's desires are arbitrary and capricious.  That may be the case or they could have reasons that are not being disclosed.  Yes, the 1DX and D4 would not qualify.  Many pros shoot Hasselblads.  The 50 mp back would certainly qualify.
