Cameras with no AA filter will inherently have more detail in their images.

This is not true. Camaeras with no AA filter may give the ´╗┐appearance´╗┐ of more detail, but in fact what you see is artefacting, not detail. With a bit of luck, the artefacts might make a convincing representation of detail, but it still isn't detail.

Then let's call it better micro-contrast or better pixel-level sharpness instead. Isn't that a good thing? In DPR's comparison tool we can compare for example D800 vs. D800e or K-5 II vs. K-5 IIs. I don't see a lot of artifacts in the D800e and K-5 IIs images, just a better pixel-level sharpness.

P.S. - Took a closer look, and actually I did find some moire patterns (or "false detail")

Moire patterns are only one symptom of aliasing. All the extra fine detail you see is false, just that some of it looks quite convincing to some people. Others are more discerning about the reality of aliased 'detail', and even without moire it can be quite horrendous where textures (which are extended areas of 'fine detail' can change their appearance completely.
