I'm a little perplexed by a lot of the negative reaction to the 36MP so I just wondered who would prefer an 18MP version (otherwise identical performance) and why.
I have a feeling it may be the 'more pixel = worse noise overall' myth.

It's not a myth. Nikon acknowledges that the D800 noise level at higher ISOs is much higher than the D4s.

Where does Nikon acknowledge that? In any case, even if they had, it's untrue. The difference is about half a stop.
