In practice, the 'limit' would be set at a higher
contrast than zero, and we might exclude some esoteric and excellent
lenses, but when the sampling frequency is above the maximum
physically possible resolution of any lens, there is no point having
an AA filter.

If this approach is eventually taken, let's hope Canon won't release a diffraction-limited 50/1.2; by my quick and dirty estimate we'd need a 950 megapixel APS-C sensor to avoid aliasing without an AA filter.
