This is a correct recommendation.

Strictly speaking, this does not save you (and by you, I mean Bob
Katz). Further operations after dithering can 'break' the dither and
reintroduce distortion. Then you have the worst of both worlds; the
distortion _and_ the added noise.

Working at 24 bit / 32 float, this is academic and won't hurt you in
any audible way. It's too far below the audible floor to care about.
