I'd like to know if Jeff Schewe's position has changed about the superiority of the technique described in his "Color Correcting in History" article, in light of "modern" Photoshop's capabilities (e.g., CS6).

In that article he shows how to use snapshots and the history brush to edit in 16-bit mode. That was back when you couldn't do much in 16-bit mode, but that limitation is largely gone. Nonetheless, there's something attractive about simply retouching by painting.

Any comments?

I still do it but more for creative effects than technical corrections which are now done primarily in Camera Raw or Lightroom (generally Lightroom). I really only use Photoshop now for those things Lightroom can't do (which is getting less and less with each LR version).

Thank you for replying, Jeff.  I understand how one can adjust exposure, open up shadows, sharpen, etc. GLOBALLY in PS ACR but the method you described in your old article stresses the ability to selectively apply such changes to specific areas of an image AND do it gradually. Obviously that can be done in PS' Adjustment Layers with masks but in your reply you refer specifically to ACR. I'm curious how you accomplish this level of flexibility and precision in ACR or LR? I must be missing something!
