At the wide end of my 12-35 it needs a lot of correction and the Photozone results do show the centre sharpness is a long way above the edge at all apertures at 12mm, but whether that's software correction or the edges of the lens just being not-so-great in comparison to the centre I have no idea.

Exactly. While we know that the resolution of the 12-35 after distortion correction is worse than before, we can't know whether the end result is better or worse than it would have been for a lens designed so as not to require any software correction. Correcting one aberration is frequently at odds with correcting others and improving distortion characteristics by optical means may well come at the expense of lower resolution.
