What is keeping Nikon from making 22 megapixel D4?

Re: Bear in mind

I'm surprised a $6000 flagship Nikon D4 cannot do 8-10fps at 24 megapixel when the sub-$2000 d600 achieves 5.5 fps at 24megapixel and the 22.3 mp 5d3 does 6 fps.

Our organization only upgrades every 3-4 years so I'm kind of stuck with D4 at 16 megapixel for the long haul.  If I had a choice to buy I would have chosen the D800:  the images look amazing and very flexible for any sort of layout.

I wonder if Canon n Nikon already have 24mp 10 fps cameras and they are holding them back for the product cycle.

Not really impressed with the $6000 4 megapixel upgrade from D3.
