Higher payments for extra-high resolution images?

I was just wondering why does the payment scheme ends at 8 Megapixels?

It's nice that pricing for downloads depends on image resolution. But why does the scheme end at 8 MP? My opinion is that this pricing scheme (up to 8 MP) was fine some time ago, when the best digital cameras had a maximum of 10 MP resolution (and mainly less). But now as many cameras has 12 MP, I think this scheme might be extended.

Also regardless of camera resolution... if I make let's say some panorama picture composed of several photos, which has for example 30 MP, why should I be paid same as for 8 MP image for full resolution download?

What' s your opinion?

I agree with Teresa that there should be some cap. Exactly the one additional price range might be a good idea.
