It does seem to say, when in doubt, use a deed, as it is easy to do, and 
"may not be enforceable" otherwise, if the agreement is one sided.  It 
advises against artificial attempts to make it mutual.

Certainly the only non-disclosure agreement I remember signing (a 
personal one, direct with the client, when I was working for a client as 
an employee of a software house) was done as a deed.  That was one 
sided, because the client was free to use anything I disclosed.
