I just simply cannot agree with that. Your quote and any other in here also mentions nothing about interference without CONTACT.
The closest we have in here is
A player is always entitled to use his body position to lengthen an opponent’s path to the puck,
[a] his stick is not utilized (to make himself “bigger” and therefore considerably lengthening the distance his opponent must travel to get where he is going);
[b] his free hand is not used and
[c] he does not take advantage of his body position to deliver an otherwise illegal check.
If there is NO contact there is NO penalty. Give an example here or something .... cripes I have never seen an interference call made when there is no contact.
Enlighten me because I cannot discern anything from the posted quotes in here to tell me otherwise. I'll go along with it if I get a proper example my dumb ass can understand lol.
If you use your free hand it is holding. If you use your stick it is hooking etc if not skating in position in the same direction as the player is already.
