The article you refered to says:

    3. Most Power Macintosh computers not listed in the table 
    above can be used without a monitor connected to them, and 
    without a monitor adapter connected to the monitor port.
and the table lists only G3 and G4. So I guess older macs may
work without the hardware kludge. My PM9600 with BootX boots 
up fine without the adaptor for instance.
