Even if there is a literal interpretation that does not contradict the article, this is not the obvious interpretation of the title. The title is misleading, even if it is not technically "false".

Yes, in the mainstream trade rags you sometimes see "clever" titles that give a false impression in order to grab attention. Kind of like how Slashdot uses intentionally inflammatory leads in order to attract posters. But I would hope that LWN aspires to higher standards.
