On "gold standards" for printing ...

On the other hand, we can display the photo at any PPI we like by upsampling.  So, we could upsample both the 5 MP and 12 MP files to, such as 300 PPI (the "gold standard" of viewing resolution).

What exactly is the basis for your belief that 300 ppi is the "gold standard" of "viewing resolution"?
I also assume you mean "printing", or "print resolution" ... ?

Could you please explain precisely and succinctly why you understand this statement to be some kind of touchstone for printing of any kind?

I again refer you to Smugmug and their comments about resolution, here:

And their requirements for their commercial printers as regards image file resolution, as per their graph on that page.

Perhaps you could do that while I contemplate my answer to the other statements that you have made.
