That text seems to be slanted completely towards Data Aggregators i.e. organisations that capture transactions from many bans, store them on their own servers and present them to the customer from a single site. Quicken's Express Web Connect and Yodlee being examples of aggregators.
Seems they are completely ignoring programs that connect to a server (Direct Connect) and just download the transactions directly to client software on the clients computer. In other words it completely ignores the situation where there is no third party involved whatsoever.
By seemingly to push aggregators as the solution mechanism they are proposing a solution that has privacy issues as compare to Moneydance where the data is only on your system and the financial institution's. They even spell it out when they say you should know what the aggregator does with your data.
The last time I did some research it looked like Intuit still owned Express Web Connect, I suspect they kept it because of Mint and that "Quicken" was provided with a license to use it as part of the sale process.
