What does "the lens is stressed less" mean? Is that accepted optics terminology? Do you have some links to authoritative sources that talk about this in more detail?

I think he means that to record the same amount of detail with the same number of pixels the lens that is in front of the smaller pixels must be resolving better, than the lens that is in front of the larger pixels. That is the smaller pixels on a smaller area with "stress" the lens more, than the larger pixels on the larger area.

thus the lens can be of lesser quality to achieve the same image quality.

Lesser quality in what respect?

As stated above.
