I think the last sentence can be a bit misleading. I would say 12 bit can (as you say with may) be enough (not always) but it depends. The article (at the end) explains why. It is a bit complicated (at least for me) because of several variables in conjunction. For example, my experiences with 8 bit sampling is that you can get very clear (seldom) and very noisy (most the time) results depending on the source. I would guess that the same can happen with 12 bit sampling. However, this hasn't much to do with the topic.
