The paper is a tour de force. Note that they use DPAF, not more general PDAF pixels.

Yes, that's the critical observation here.  Without it you don't get the data you need for best quality fake bokeh.
It causes me to wonder how things would improve with a QPAF arrangement (recent Nikon patent, permitting X-Y feature sensing). You'd think that X-Y light field data would be better than just X, but maybe not...
