It's a nice page with a lot of good info.
For myself, I only need to add a couple of config options to a vanilla 
kernel, and add myself to the appropriate group to get what I need for 
live audio processing.
Which indicates that any other needed config to achieve the same 
functionality on another machine is somehow hardware dependent.

I'm still unclear about things like the networkmanager, which only 
causes problems on certain machines. Disabling it does not seem like a 
good "standard" way to configure your desktop for audio use. Rather the 
last resort, when you are having problems.
Perhaps it is impossible to get any kind of acceptable operation on some 
machines because of hardware design, and no reasonable coding would fix 
that on any level.
Fixing things can be done on many levels. Some are better down lower 
down, and some higher up.
I prefer to have as little done high up, if possible.
