As a simple thought experiment you might test a lens on 12MP sensor and because the sensor simply can't resolve the very finest detail the MTF results would show the center, edges and corners perform nearly the same.

Sorry - you seem to repeat a fairly common internet myth.

No lens out resolves any sensor, and no sensor out resolves any lens.

If you use a higher resolving lens on a 12MP sensor - image resolution goes up.

While the highest image resolution is achieved with a combination of the highest resolving sensors and the highest resolving lenses, 12 MP is not a ceiling for image resolution.

In lots of ways good photography is much more about how equipment is used rather than anything else.
