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 still have a film SLR camera tamron 28-300mm zoom that is huge but it worked ok when I used to use it.  Are we saying the same cannot be easily done for digital, or are we saying 300mm is not a superzoom?
