Are Lenses Holding Back Megapixel Cameras?

I saw the discussion about the lens limitations and it reminded me of a discussion I had with a lens manufacturer about 4 or 5 years ago. This manufacturer stated the megapixel camera's imager chips are out pacing the technology for lenses. The lenses are glass and cannot keep pace with the chips. He said megapixel lenses were in reality limited to 3 megapixels due to the physical properties...
