While I agree with what you say, the reason for it is wrong. "72dpi" has no 
meaning for
screen viewing. Only the pixel dimensions are relevant. Screens don't know 
"dpi" or
"ppi". They only show pixels.

Obviously, applying the same degree of sharpening to a 3000x2000 pixel image 
and to
a 800x600 pixel image will have drastically different results.
