In-camera sharpening?

Say that theoretically you had 2 point/shoot cameras, camera A and camera B, which produced exactly the same quality of .jpeg images but camera A's images were sharper.

If one applied sharpening in post to the images from B, wouldn't the images from both cams then be equal? It even seems that in effect, the less sharp B camera would have the advantage since you can always sharpen to suit. IOW, there's no real advantage to having the images sharpened on capture, other than the time which might be saved?
