When you compare sensors at an equal output size, you're obviously
binning pixels together (if the resolution of both chips is high
enough). However, that's hardly 'exotic mojo'. What do you think your
raw converter of choice does when you produce an 800x600 image?

So then you'd be changing its relative pixel density.

If you like... We're getting somewhere here. If you agree that this is allowed, what use is it to know the actual pixel density? If you know the pixel count you have the maximum resolution (a hard limit) and if you know the sensor size you have a handle on the noise performance for a given output size.
