Camera on Tripod - IS on or off?

Over the years there have been many discussions on whether lens IS should be on or off if the camera is tripod mounted. Whilst exploring something else I came across this Canon article. It does seem to be definitive,  at lest for Canon lenses.  I don't think I've seen it referenced before - apologies if I am repeating something well known.
