This is the operative quote from the whole article.

"And lastly: Performance is a browser level issue, it is not something for HTML/CSS authors to fix or work around. As long as we are authoring valid and sensible HTML and CSS, we should not need to resort to such ridiculous rules simply to enhance the speed at which a given page renders."

If you think that its okay to pass the buck on performance then the author is completely right. On the other hand, if you are looking for ways to write performance oriented code, because you want your pages to be faster, large company or not, then CSS Lint is a great starting place. No one said it was the last word.

UPDATE: I posted a longer thought here http://alexkessinger.net/2011/07/11/a-quick-rebuttle-for-css...
