"Will Higher Resolution of D800 Be Visible in "Native" Resolution Prints?"

I am one of many who have ordered the D800 (hedged with another order for a D800E, and not knowing which to buy at this point). Like others, I am excited about the camera and looking forward to getting it. I am shooting a D200 at this time so the difference in resolution is quite large. However, I wonder how much of that difference we will be able to see in prints that are not upscaled beyond the native resolution. If I calculate correctly the size of a print at the native resolution at 360 ppi is about 20.4 x 13.6 inches. The size of a "native resolution" print from the D200 is about 7.2 x 10.75 inches. So, for example, if one makes two 7 x 10.5 inch prints, one made with the D200 and one made with the D800, will one see the higher resolution of the D800 in the print?
