Dedicated video DSLR scenario

So... 1080p resolution is roughly a 2mp image, right? Would you buy a DSLR with an APSC (or FF) sensor but which only has a 2mp image capability? Obviously, the pixels would be ENORMOUS (huge plus), but there's no pixel binning or line skipping to worry about, or their inherent weaknesses.
I could be wrong so please correct me if I'm am but, wouldn't this produce dramatically better results? Or is there some physics-based deficiency I'm unaware of?
To me, this would be intriguing with DPAF and at about $600. Especially at SL1 size but add on a little size for the articulating screen.
Anyone else?
What about a 4K resolution (8-ish megapixels) DSLR for those who insist 4k is necessary right now?
