You're attacking an answer without considering the question that the answer is answering. That seems to be something you like to do. The question asked was of compact sensors and their theoretical limits. The answer to the question asked is that when a given sensor size and lens combination is operating at their diffraction limit, increasing the megapixel count will not increase the real detail of the capture.

areas of analog focal plane into POINTS of information. The real
resolution of a camera is a combination of the lens, and the sensor
(including AA filter and microlenses).

That has to be the most absurd twisting of words to say the same thing that I've ever read from you (although I should note that I don't read everything you write.)
