I’m convinced that LR sharpens at the appropriate point…however there are many like me that don’t use LR and some of us will never use LR. So the problem remains whether there are issues in ACR and PS regarding what happens if there is significant or perhaps excessive sharpening in ACR before it goes into PS modifications.

ACR and LR have the exact same processing pipeline so whether you use ACR or LR to do capture sharpening is moot.

Assuming ACR, you are still better off combining the optimal capture sharpening and noise reduction in ACR before you process into Photoshop. The creative and output sharpening can be done later in Photoshop. The key is to not "over-sharpen" but "properly" sharpen in ACR.
