Schmegg is talking about absolute sensor surface resolution, or resolution per unit of sensor area.  Others think of resolution as resolution per sensor.

Yes - people often "think of resolution as resolution per sensor", but then turn to "absolute sensor surface resolution" by comparing at 100% (or higher) to show the difference!

Then they certainly wouldn't like to see what is really hitting the focal plane, without the influence of the photosites: a mostly black starfield with lots of isolated color stars, if you magnify enough and/or exposure is low enough.  Even a "white" subject would have no white stars; just a rainbow of colored ones.
