I'm reasonably skilled in all technology mentioned in the article and I'm still 'not a front-end person'. Because there is more, way more: Accessibility, Usability and feeling for 'style' to name a few things. Even just photoshop et al (should I have mentioned creativity in the previous list?), yes html5/canvas and css(3) go a long way, - but not all the way. Having knowledge in and experience with developing front-ends or any UI is critical knowledge for any senior developer but regardless of skill it still doesn't make the person 'a front-end person' because the 'soft' skills just don't come naturally. ,
