I would agree with this only if the actual size of the screen was larger.

A wire frame image at full resolution on that monitor is just about not going to be visible. If you zoom into the image then you're completely defeating the point of the extra resolution.

I'm still of the opinion that extra resolution with no increase of screen real estate is a pretty wasted effort.
