Could there be a downside to going from 16 to 24 Megapixels? No?

I know in point and shoots, and I've read also in the D3200, that more pixels can have downsides. I'm a novice, but I'm thinking about a D7000 or D5100, but can't decide if I should wait for the 24 MP versions. Are these likely to be clearly better sensors with better detail and no problems? Nikon might not care if the low-end cameras get noisy with more pixels, but they wouldn't do that to people sophisticated enough to buy a D5200 or D7000....would they? They would really be shooting themselves in the foot with the higher end customers, whereas really it doesn't matter with the point and shoot market....right?

So the move up can only be a great thing, right? There won't be a down side in the $1000+ camera market, right? Right?

So I can stop thinking about the D7000 and D5100 and Black Friday? Right? Yes?
