If only Nikon could implement this functionality, the d800 really become an almost perfect camera.

With 36 MP, you could expect an M-RAM equivalent to a 24MP or 16MP, see both.

To work! Nikon

You are aware that raw data needs to be demosaiced before reducing size?

Canon mraw promises file sizes of approximately 66% (Canon).

Nikon has 12 bit (non-lossless) compressed NEFs which gives approximately the same file sizes in relation to 14 bit lossless compressed in a far more sensible way than Canon mraw.
