By doing this, you've completely invalidated your JPEG comparison files.

No, it doesn't. It is one  way of comparing both cameras. There are other ways (resizing the 5DmkIII to the D800's resolution, resizing them to an intermediate resolution, or a much lower one, printing both at the same size (big or small), ...), and you might as well compare them the way you want according to the way you use your cameras, but it certainly doesn't "invalidate" this comparison at all.

Anyway, I wasn't lazy and downloaded the raw files.

Good decision.

Very quick impression - no shortage of CA from that lens, some aliasing clearly visible, and there is an obvious difference in resolution between the two cameras. D800 is the clear winner.

And good conclusion (even though "clear" winner is a little bit subjective here).

Thanks to the OP for providing the files and comparison.
