It does however, highlight the fact that it's photos of manmade patterns that are most likely to cause problems, since many things are manufactured this way, but these type of regular patterns rarely occur in nature.

Very true.

With regard to examples, there are lots of examples of moire patterns.  What I failed to make clear was that I was looking more for other types of examples as it seems to often be assumed that moire is the only disadvantage of removing the AA filter. Also, as can be seen from the images in my OP, the inclusion of an AA filter only reduces the moire effect, it generally doesn't completely remove it.
