Thom Hogan, who I think is a straight-shooter had the following to say (on his site today) - which I think makes a lot more sense and is far more practical:

"My personal advice: unless you're primarily shooting something you know shouldn't be a big issue--basically landscapes--you shouldn't go this route. Shooting in and around cities and shooting people that aren't nude makes you susceptible to moire. Moreover, you're not likely to see it at capture time: you'd need to be constantly zooming the playback on the LCD to see it, and 36mp is a pretty big mess of pixels to try to examine closely on the 3.2" LCD. Simply put: removing moire is way harder than adding perceived acuity through sharpening. Way."

I also agree with Thom as this article from Wikipedia shows moire is very unpredictable and it also depends on how you view and print the image.

I have seen moire only once, with a normal D200 on this hat, which on my WUXGA laptop shows moire when zoomed out at 75%, no problem for printing but it made me waste time checking.
