Would you please provide some data to back this up.
I may try to dig it up if I have some time; there is no comprehensive single report with all of it so it would be a lot of work.

And if that is the case maybe it's simply because demultiplexing is being done by CASAVA v2 on NextSeq and CASAVA v1 on HiSeq and Miseq. What if you did demultiplexing yourself, taking into account Quality scores (which I assume is not typically done).
I did do the demultiplexing manually, which is why (for example) and are in the BBTools package; I wrote them just for this experiment Even aggressive filtering on barcode quality was unable to substantially impact the relative differences between the platforms.
