AGOL and web tier authentication

The ArcGIS online help system states the following :

 

“ArcGIS Online supports ArcGIS Server authentication (not Web Tier authentication) for adding and accessing secure services.”

http://doc.arcgis.com/en/arcgis-online/reference/arcgis-server-services.htm#ESRI_SECTION2_F33AA3DF4B6E49A69A2C92F199797CC5

  I have to say that the statement is a bit confusing to me since I am able to add secured services from ArcGIS Servers secured using Web Tier Authentication and I don’t run into any problems.  Can anyone clarify what this statement really means ? Is web tier authentication not really supported or I am missing something ? Many clients out there use web tier authentication for single sign and integration with other corporate systems.
