Remove all SCSI devices for an IDE system?!

The Handbook, section 8.4:
"SCSI controllers. Comment out any you do not have in your
system. If you have an IDE only system, you can remove these
"SCSI peripherals. Again, comment out any you do not have, or
if you have only IDE hardware, you can remove them completely."
However, some IDE/SATA devices are interfaced through the SCSI
subsystem, IIRC. This seems to be supported by what is written a few
lines further down the text:
# RAID controllers interfaced to the SCSI subsystem
device amr # AMI MegaRAID
device arcmsr # Areca SATA II RAID
Here a SATA2 RAID controller is listed as being linked to the SCSI
My suggestion is to fix and/or clarify this text.
