I think the article was written for people that either did not plan on retiring, e.g. were laid off. Or never thought about it and one day realized they were retirement age.

To your points above, anyone that had been diligently working towards Financial Independence would not have any of those "signs" apply to them. Or if they did, they would not be an issue.

I don't entirely agree with your "no debts" principle. In an era of low interest rates, if a rate is sufficiently low and locked in at that low rate, why pay it off early? I'm obviously not referring to credit card debt, but with a 25-year fixed-payment student loan and a 30-year fixed mortgage both each below 4% (before taking into account the benefit of tax deductions), I'm in no rush to pay them off!
