Cameras are like guns, most of them shoot better than I.
However, some do not. If the camera/lens at hand produces a handsome decent size print, it may well be good enough.
As having been caught with the wrong or no equipment, by all means carry what you will.
As to P&S, there are some that will catch an image I would not otherwise catch as I just cannot, or will not, carry my proper camera kit everywhere at all times. At one time, that meant MF, several bodies loaded with color and B&W.
Question has been, how many do I have to buy to find one that produces images, "good enough".
Some seem to have some awful sensors/lenses.
I find the Canon G9 or 10 good enough often, with the result of some good prints.
I also try to have a newer Sony with a decent hunk of glass, as total pocket camera, I really like a viewfinder though, but at this point it is what it is.
In a few years, the P&S's will all be in cell phones, are there any with Leitz or Zeiss glass? Must be by now. ;-)
To capture some of this -- I suppose that's lyricism.
