Very good point Jon. They indeed focus on Short lived branches and there are no mentions to CI-per-branch on the research.
I tried to bring some of my experience to the post where I have worked in different companies and have seen very successful projects with amazing speed like deploying to production several times a day using the style I mentioned, which I think is absolutely fine, specially if you are taking incremental steps towards CI/CD.
Trunk based development has its own gotchas that could be tricky to adopt if you don't have a reliable CI/CD pipeline in place already. But I absolutely see its value.
