The article was talking about the differences in power between different type systems. It's not even primarily focused on dependent types, let alone advocating for using them or claiming that they're easy. In fact it notes that the more advanced type systems "make the language more complex." If the article were suggesting everyone should use dependent types, or that they were easy, then your admonishments about dependent type systems would make sense here, but as it is I'm not sure.
