"Intervals may be skipped" doesn't mean that the code in the example won't be executed. It means that if you're using intervals, they may not occur as frequently as you think based on what's already queued to be completed. A new interval will not be added to the queue if there is already one in the queue, and that may happen for any number of reasons.
