The article is certainly correct about the need to consider the entire "system" in order to understand what a filter circuit is really doing. Of course, the real challenge is often in meeting cost constraints while still providing adequate protection. That is why designing for EMC must start at the very beginning, even with the selection of active devices, in order to assure that there will be no unfortunate surprises later on. This would also include a careful examination of production variables, including the liberties taken by PCB layout designers.
