I think this  is a bit of a distortion. For _most_ purposes, 300dpi 
should be adequate.

For high-resolution printing commercially, 600 or even greater may be 
desired. I'm not sure that once you get to 1200+ that it gets so easy to 
see further improvement in the visible quality, unless you're talking 
about printing to a very large format.
