Replying to myself: FreeBSD itself has moved to journalling (via gjournal) since version 7. I'm not sure what the defaults are on a new install, but (a) the default kernel supports it, and (b) for best performance, disabling softupdates is recommended.
So I have to assume that not only is this article spot-on, but FreeBSD itself has had enough of softupdates. People who continue to bring it up on linux lists are probably not the people who are likely to be able to implement it, or appreciate the issues. Thanks for the very readable clarification!
