wouldn't s/n ratio and DR improve even more if MP
didn't increase?

Only slightly, and only from second-order effects.

I just don't like the trend towards sensors so high in MP that it
negatively impacts DR and diffraction. Soon there won't be any
benefit of cropping because the pixels themselves will be much worse
than MPs of today.

Are my concerns legitimate?

I think so.

To be honest, my biggest complaint about the newer cameras isn't the pixel count, it's the slow lenses. Regardless of what they do to sensors, the difference between f3.5 on the S5 and f5.7 on the S10IS is not recoverable.
