Sharpening

My perception is that as each generation of sensor has had
higher and higher pixel density, the need for sharpening has been
reduced.

By this I mean that sharpening is basically a means of smoothing
over transitions among the pixels and as they have gotten closer
together the non sharpened or lightly sharpened appearance has
improved.

I don't mean to imply that learning good sharpening procedures
is not important to becoming a better photographer, but rather that
as the pixel density goes up it becomes relatively less critical.

Kind of thinking out loud, am I on the right track here ?
