Sorry - but this is not true. At least not, if you know what you are doing.
You can rename the folder, but if you do so, you will have to edit
"TYPO3_mainDir" in different files.
Additionally you have to edit index.php and change the PATH_site definition
there and you may want to check installed extensions if they are using
"typo3" as a hardcoded part of $BACK_PATH in BE modules.

It's a lot of work and most of it has to be done manually, so IMHO you must
have a VERY good reason for doing things like these.
