On a more general note, though, I am curious about whether what we can actually see in terms of resolution with current display or printing technology (and no peeping) will hold true in the future. What would the situation be like if we had displays of the same size but with 16 MP rather than 2 MP resolution. Would we still be unable to see much of a difference?

TV and video have increased in resolution over time. When you were watching TV as a child, did you complain about low resolution?  It's amusing to read old articles about the amazing fidelity of wax cylinders.

It's easier to notice differences when comparing side by side or when there are major differences from what you are used to.
