Could be the information was regarding fishing the nymph beneath a bobber / indicator, I can not see where a tapered leader would have any advantage when used this way.
I think you're right, Ard. I'll nymph under an indicator with straight fluoro, unless I think there might be dry fly opportunity during the day. If I think there will be a hatch I'll fish a tapered leader just so I can change up quickly.
