I think that's grossly overstated, if not just plain wrong.  Ceteris
paribus, a system with port knocking is almost certainly more secure
than a system without port knocking. It's not a guarantee against
penetration.  But even if it's only a heightened "degreee" of security
not an additional "kind" of security measure (as you argue), it's
still heightened security.
