I would argue that a general "wrong" is a bit strong in this context.
"The wrong approach to reach your objectives" in many cases or "a more
limited way of achieving web layouts" in general.

This is both true and untrue. The semantic idea is in the heart I'd say,
but it's far from a fulfilled property of HTML markup. The important
part, perhaps, is that separating structure and contextual meaning
(HTML) from presentation (CSS and graphics) when done right, gives many
advantages. The disadvantage is that it takes another way of developing
and that there are many pitfalls to watch out for.
