that article looks quite out of date, tuned for example will handle
quite a few things - and powertop can be used to tune accessories up as
well.

Depends on what one is tuning for.

eg. i dont need the wwan interface most of the time, so loading the
driver and powering it down is more productive than what most people do
: dont load the driver till its needed
