I think if you visit Thom's site, you'll discover that his opinions on this have evolved along with the technology. The well-supported theory now is that high ISO noise performance in print depends on the size of the sensor, not the sensels. On the other hand, a sensor with fewer sensels is less inclined to mechanical blur, making it easier to produce a clean file at full resolution.
