It is written as if only simple_one_for_one supervisors can start a child on demand, but in fact you can start a child dynamically for all types of supervisors.

There were some differences in the past regarding what you could do with a simple_one_for_one compared to a one_for_one, but now the main reason is that it is cleaner to have a simple_one_for_one supervisor as it shows that all children are of the same type.
