look closely at the 5dc lips below - jaggies and artifacts - 5dc is sharper yes, but clearly the 60d has more resolution and avoids the jaggies

I much prefer the 60d image in the comparison below - artifacts and jaggies ain't resolution as the lips show

Just one clarification that above is NOT my original photos.  You know that in that thread if anyone ever checked.  That's why I said don't repeat old words over and over as we have discussed/debated enough in that thread.  No mention in your own test in that thread that shows 5D actually holds well against your T4i in center but showing a bit more details (at least sharper) in edges.  DXOMark may use average frame MTF data in its p-mpix calculation.

This is from my original photos at 100% sizes (and I upsampling 5D file to 60D size for easier comparison at the same size).  If upsampling can increase resolution as someone suggested, it's great and wonderful as Canon shooters would only need to upsampling 5D3 photos to 36mp to match from D800/D800E

In real world outside photos that ultimately matter, my eyes (and I am not alone if you read that thread) see 5D actually resolves more fine details than 60D in my test photos.

World 'Resolution' seems highly controversial and misused.  It's only matter if your eyes can actually resolve (see) the fine details (the word I prefer) in real world photos.  That's why DXOMark Perceptual Sharpness makes sense which on my understanding based on MTF resolution (20% and above) + acutance out of cameras by default.  In reality you'd need much less sharpening in 5D files than in 60D/7D while 5D still can withstand sharpening (much) better before showing obvious artifacts.
