I think you're right, but nevertheless for an actor it's always better to have a instinctive approach first free from any preconceived notion. That's why I always find more interesting when the actor or director is not a recalcitrant fan and have no giant baggage about the characters beforehand. I'm sure Ledger was refering to the same thing.
To make it clear, I have never doubted about Ledger's talent.
Awesome. I agree with every word of that post.
