Actually per the tests I've seen, at 135mm and max aperture the 18-135 better at the corners than the 18-200, as the 18-200 @ 135mm center-to-edge performance is similar to the 18-135mm @ 85mm.
Per the 18-135mm / 18-200mm comparison at: http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ISO-12233-Sample-Crops.aspx?Lens=678&Camera=474&Sample=0&FLI=0&API=0&LensComp=476&CameraComp=0&FLIComp=0&APIComp=0
the 18-200mm center performance is better than the 18-135mm at all focal lengths, and with both lenses at f/8 the 18-200 is as good or better than the 18-135 at the corners.
