On the subject of the article, the jaw-dropping thing IMO was the commercial phrase reference. I doubt they're only looking at titles... Google has the adwords data to know what phrases are valuable and aren't. I suspect EVERYTHING (titles/anchor text/body/h1's/meta description/etc) is checked to see if the occurrence of commercial to non commercial phrases is too high statistically (something I've long suspected). No wonder about/contact/privacy policies/etc... are so important...they water down your commercial keyword density.
If you haven't checked out netcomber.com yet for your favorite site, be sure to do so. If HE is using grouping data (like analytics/whois/ips/etc...) to determine groups and valid backlinks...then there is a good chance google is too.
