Sure it is. Feel free to compare lens tests between high and low resolution cameras. I've done it. The gains of the higher pixel density are disproportional, and vary across the frame.

No, the rather perfect geometries of sensors are the least likely to produce disproportionate variation across the frame.

What are you basing your notion on?

The fact that even perfect pixels don't produce flat MTFs.

This simply isn't a meaningful statement. Both lens and sensors degrade image quality from its potential. A better lens will degrade the image less; same with the sensor. A simplified analogy is that out of 100% a better lens or sensor counts 0.9 against this ratio instead of 0.8.
