The 24mp will reward you with a visible increase of diffraction compared to a rather small increase of resolution. With todays 16mp sensors f16 is heavily impacted by diffraction, f11 in most cases visibly impacted and f5.6 or faster with no visible impact.

With 24mp f16/f11 will almost become unusable, f8 visibly impacted and only f4 or faster with no visible impact. I don't think the majority of photogs has any interest in such a limitation.

Imagine a sensor with infinite resolution. Would it also suffer from infinite diffraction at all apertures? Of course not.
