This is correct. What the authors mean is that Quantum teleportation
is impossible to do by purely classical means. They are not saying
that classical teleportation is impossible. They say that because
some quantum algorithm has been shown runnable by purely classical
gates (but even this can be ambiguous, so be careful taking the
context of the paper into account).
