I have a pair of Roger Sound Labs studio monitors for my speakers at home. I got to look at their insides when a technician was replacing a blown midrange speaker (they have a "lifetime" warranty, however that warranty expired when RSL did). Looking at the cross over filter network I could see a network selecting for frequencies > 20khz and it was shunted to a resistor. I asked about it, and the reponse was exactly like the authors, by filtering out signals higher than the tweeter could reproduce, they improved the listening experience.

It made sense to me, and I love how the speakers sound. Understanding is not inserting distortion makes even more sense.
