You omitted the exception bit of the quote.  Let me re-add it:

So if there's other logged changes, yeah, omit "Version bump" as well.  
It's redundant.  But if it's the only change, by his logic, which as a 
regular changelog reader I agree with, either "Version bump" or "Remove 
old" should remain so there's at least some human entered message.
