Did Sony "Dumb down" their sensor intentionally? For Nikon?

It has nothing to do with the sensor itself. It's all about shutter
and mirror mechanics.

Yup.

Although the sensor supports up to 10 FPS, the shutter, mirror and
DSP chips do not.

Dont forget the AS/SSS .. too much vibration from the shutter etc can be problematic.
