Dummynet configuration is ideally done through dnctl now. While ipfw
still works dnctl is preferred now that dummynet can also be used with
pf.

Yes and no. It's still relevant if you want ipfw, which is now one of two ways to use dummynet.

This one we absolutely want to keep. Both ipfw and pf can be used to send traffic to dummynet, so we want to point at both.
