I believe (unless I'm mistaken) they're talking about starting with 6 gallons or so of water to boil and not diluting it (unless you over boil) vs starting with 3 or 2.
I brew in my apartment so I have one option, and it isn't 5 gallons. I've never had any issues with how I've brewed and if you're going 5 gallon non-diluted, you better have a kickass propane burner because otherwise you're gonna spend a long time waiting.
