I'd say that it's not false either. 

I think that the issues he is raising are real ones but that either
they're not as important as he thought or we've learn to get used to
them and workaround them.

The three layer model he's proposing doesn't seem very different from
Durusau's Just In Time Trees combined with a style sheet language and I
wouldn't call it a bad idea.
