You are missing my point. Of course the 6K figure relates to horizontal resolution but if a 35mm print is scanned the resulting image at a similar density would be around 6K in horizontal resolution.

My point is that if the 1 or 2k digital print has always been good enough then why would anyone ever film at higher than that if the human eye can't see a difference in quality in the projected print.

In film terms, projectors could and still can, project a 35mm print. Many directors still want to use this format and even higher (Nolan with Dunkirk, Tarantino with hateful eight). The quest for bigger and more in terms of film, went from 8mm to 65mm and is doing the same in digital.
