Which part did you mean? That about Pesk or about the Deamon Lord?
In both points he talks about abilities with KEYWORDS
. No one disagree with this. The question is what is a keyword or when is a rule referenced to a Keyword. In my opinion it's totaly clear that Longstrikes rule don't use a Keyword, he buffs a specific unittype.
There are sooooooo many of these type of rules all over the indices.

I could list so much more. Nearly every Tyranid HQ buff a specific unit. If the buff target one specific unit, the keywords are not used.
I can't understand why someone could argue TX7 Hammerhead Gunships and TX7 HAMMERHEAD GUNSHIPS
are both meant to be the keyword. Did they just for fun write sometimes the keywords bold
and CAPS and sometimes normal? And that's not a Tau issue, this effects everything. It mess up all rules if the keywordsystem is interpreted different. But if the rulebook or AoS FAQ don't convince you, we have to wait for a GW response.
