prints (46.8 inches x 33.1 inches) as it seems that some A900 owners
are quite prepared to print A900 images to this size. But with a Sony
A900 image which is 6048 pixels wide, a print of 46.8 inches
represents a relatively low ppi of about 129. So it seems that the
need for 300 dpi really is a bit of a myth these days?

It's not quite like that. When stuff gets printed large, it will be upscaled. You don't simply get the original pixels blown up, and even if you did, at normal viewing distances it wouldn't matter.
