Well, that is useful. Because given the choice of getting 12
megapixels from a 1/1.7" sensor or a 135 sensor I'd much rather have
the lower pixel density of the 135 sensor.

That means you'd rather have a larger sensor, which is a different point entirely. The discussion in this thread is not about sensor size, it's about pixel density at a given size.

But sticking with like-sized sensors, I notice that the 1DsIII is a
lot noisier at high ISO than the D3. Another one of those unfortunate
coincidences that keeps piling up on the mountain of anecdotal
evidence?

Is it that much noisier if you downsample both to the same resolution? It may be, of course, but I haven't seen any evidence to think it is. If it is, it goes on the pile of anecdotal evidence indeed, but please forgive me in pointing out that you have also conveniently ignored the image samples by John Sheehy that would go on the pile of counterevidence.
