. . . which pretty much means if your machine hasn't yet been a part of a Version update cohort you can safely use the Update Assistant on the Microsoft Windows 10 Download Page or download the ISO from same and use these instructions for Updating Windows 10 using the Windows 10 ISO file.

 

See:  Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (1709) fully available

Is this to mean, if someone wants to upgrade from Windows less-than-10 to Windows 10, that file will be the one single file to install?

 

I live with two Windows 10 machines having had Windows 10 on them from the start with the machines and allowed for regularly updating Windows  and they have both gone onto to  this version 1709 on their own,  No bad results.

No, this does not refer to upgrading to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 through Windows 7.
 
What it means is that if your machine is on Version 1703 (or, perhaps, earlier) it is not necessary to wait for your machine to be included in an update cohort for Version 1709 if one wishes to force the update now.
 
It is best not to force a feature update (when a major version number change occurs) and wait until it is delivered via Windows Update until the declaration from Microsoft that a version is in "fully available" status.  Once that declaration has been made users can feel free to manually force a feature update (though it should eventually come in through Windows Update if you don't).
