For sharpening _what_?  The steps you would take when sharpening a photo 
for the web are different than what you'd do when sharpening a photo for 
print.  And there are all sorts of artistic reasons to use various 
classes of sharpen that aren't related to the physical phenomena which 
cause a loss of sharpness in photographs shot through lenses.

Much like the real world (sharpening a knife or a tool), "sharpening" 
isn't some magical term.  It's a bunch of techniques, and which you use 
depends on your input and desired output.  You generally wouldn't 
sharpen a kitchen knife with a file, but you would sharpen a drill bit 
with one.
