3) less pixels on same size sensor within same sensor-generation generally mean better high-ISO performance and better DR/colour-depth at higher ISO's too.

That's absolutely false, the classic counterexample being the D600 vs D800.

When I compare the ISO 6400 and above RAW samples in the DPreview widget, it's pretty obvious that the D800 has more noise, especially colour, than the lower megapx D600.

Nope.  Try again.
