The article doesn't explain how that big list of all daemons to start in parallel is established.
Either implicit dependencies are used, and you rely on socket activation, but you don't start daemons as early as they could be; or explicit dependencies are used, sockets are used only to help processes wait for each other, and the dependencies list needs to be maintained.
There's an ease-of-maintainance / performance tradeoff here, and you don't get both for free.
