Put it this way, pixels will matter alot more when canon release a 40MP camera.

Yeah, as they suddenly tried to matter to the Nikonians after the release of the D800. Remember the time when 12mp was enough?

Only effectively matter a) when you have lenses that capable to resolve 36mp or 40mp; b) [...]

Every lens known to man shows improvement from 8mp to 15-18mp APS-C, which translates from 5D2-3/6D to the hypothetical 40mp FF sensor. In fact, there are tests of EF lenses with Pentax Q, and it surprising to see how much resolution is lost with the current 20-22mp sensors.
