This may be true cause I also do not see any sharpness degradation with the 105/2.8 VR macro. But it may be untrue regarding the bokeh.
I can see also another disadvantage of having VR on the 24-70 lens: VR needs at least a fraction of second to switch on. This may result in a loss of crucial shots by a press photographer and the lens is intended for the use by photojournalists rather than for amateur photographers.
