People say that interchangeable superzoom ("travel") lenses can't manage good sharpness, yet superzoom compacts do just fine in terms of sharpness. Why is that?

I'd guess a combination of smaller sensors being easer to design lenses for and compact users being much less demanding of lens performance, probably not noticing or caring about soft boarders/corners.
