the term "vocal cavity" isn't a recognized term in pedagogy, so I changed it.

He means "vocal cords", not "vocal chords". Vocals can't sing chords. Common mistake.

Ian Howell, countertenor and music teacher, has a blog where he states: "Countertenors are neither exclusively born nor made; any man can learn to better his countertenor voice."

You are wrong. Countertenors are normal basses or tenors who study how to sing in falsetto. There are university music school programs in developing the countertenor technique. There are in fact a very few adult men in the world who can sing in the alto range, but all the professional countertenors I know of are actually basses or tenors who have developed a falsetto technique.
