If using heavy lens, to ruin your bayonet mount, fix the camera itself.

They are talking about a heavy lens. Admittedly, it is very rare that a lens will fall on the ground but metal fatigue is the problem.

It says to use two independent supports for the lens and camera. With one tripod you have one pivot point for all vibrations, with a second support it is much more stable.
