WebDAV (aka Web Disk) connects over http. In order to connect over WebDAV, your domain name needs to be pointing to our server. The issue here is that if you don't have a dedicated SSL provisioned for your domain name, secure WebDAV won't work. So, rather than this being a MacHighway policy issue, it's actually a technical issue. If you elect to connect via Secure WebDAV and no valid SSL certificate for your domain name is present, you will have errors rather than a successful connection.
That said, I completely agree with you and we will update that article to denote that it is not a secure method of file transfer.
As far as SFTP goes, unfortunately, cPanel limits SFTP to the main FTP login credentials and doesn't extend that ability to any additional FTP accounts. Again, this is a technical limitation rather than a changeable policy.
I hope that clarifies things.
