Description references blogs.dir for wpmu and I don't think that's used anymore. The nginx rules should be updated?

The blogs.dir setup is still supported by WordPress, it's just not the default setting anymore. For older blogs that still have it enabled, then it's still necessary information.

Basically, if you setup an old version of WP and then upgraded over the years, your code still uses blogs.dir. My own multisite instance does, in fact. :)

At the very least, the caveat should be to not include them and have a new section for older wordpress installs. People who install WPMU today won't be able to follow those directions. IMHO ;-)

I've added a note to the codex page stating they may not be needed.
If you feel the following comment isn't good enough or needs tweaking, please feel free to edit the codex.

Note: WordPress Network installs no longer need the blogs.dir rules when creating a network, however may still be needed when migrating older installations.
