Great article! Unlike the other comments, I agree with all points you mentioned!

Same for the negative indicator.

All programming experience is on the CV

Good devs don't have to show off with all programming experience they might have done. You could have done a big C++ project, Java software years ago, but this isn't relevant anymore since you might have forgotten a lot if you haven't used that language afterwards, or maybe the technology isn't used anymore, or is outdated (e.g. Flash, ActionScript), so they shouldn't be mentioned on your CV.

And I would say, the technologies/languages that aren't relevant for the job description shouldn't be mentioned on your CV. Only the relevant ones and the ones you use on a regular basis.
