JMHO, but I think that soundstage depth is a hall mark of fine resolution, whereas more presence, forward & flatter sound stage is more associated with an uptilted upper-midrange and high end.

i don't see the point. just go with the set of qualities that you value most. having said that timbre, pitch resolution, note decay (all functions of harmonics) were the last qualities to flesh out in my system and probably are the qualities i would be most critical of when evaluating a system or component.
Resolution is the fineness of image that can distinguished. Traditionally, resolution was applied to the visual, as in photography, telescopy. cinematography or even TV. By analogy, we have aural imagery. So position, separation, depth and relative values and interplay to a sonic image. In one sense it even surpasses the visual, because vision is mono or stereo, but sound has a much wider a field. So there is a point.
