(meaning you won't be told that square taper bottom brackets are no longer made or that they are, but just basic, inexpensive ones). I built up Surly Trolls for my wife and me.
I'll admit I was surprised Sugino still makes square taper cranks. I have not heard of Sugino since the mid 1980s. Did not even know they still existed. As for the ones Surly uses on its complete bikes. They are some Chinese company I have never heard of. Shimano abandoned square tapers on its upper models in the late 1990s or so. They may still make square taper cranks for the cheapest bikes they equip. But not on the upper levels. I have several Dura Ace square taper cranks. And Campagnolo square taper cranks. All over 15 years old. Not sure I would recommend someone build up a bike using parts 15 or more years old. Just like I would not recommend someone build up a bike using 7 or 8 speed parts. The biking world has moved on.
Not sure how square taper bottom brackets can use larger bearings than Shimano Hollowtech. Square taper bottom brackets go inside the bottom bracket shell on the frame. Its a tube about 1.375" diameter. Hollowtech shells are about 1.875" diameter. About half inch larger because the Hollowtech shells that hold the bottom bracket bearings are outside the frame's bottom bracket tube, which is about 1.375" diameter. With the larger Hollowtech shell you end up with more and bigger bearings. But anyway, bottom brackets are fairly durable and rarely give any problems. The problem with square taper sealed bottom brackets is there are not many or any higher end cranks built for them anymore. The Sugino mentioned above are probably nice. I have good memories of Sugino from about 30 years ago.
Jan Heine, the link you provided, runs a magazine and a bicycle parts company. A company that sells the square taper bottom brackets you are fond of. He might have a vested interest. Kind of like when a bike magazine recommends a bike and then you see advertisements in the magazine from that same bike brand. Makes you wonder if the magazine selling advertisements to the bike company can be trusted to do an objective review of the bike. They are paid by the bike company.
You say you are a Surly owner. Do you know anything about Surly? Surly is a brand name created by QBP. QBP is the largest bike parts distributor in the US. QBP is based in Minneapolis. QBP supplies all the stuff to your local bike shop. QBP saw an opportunity in the biking world. People were fond of old biking parts for some reason. Not sure why because old bike parts never worked as nicely as newer parts. But QBP wanted to capitalize on this fondness people had for the old days. So they created the Surly brand. All Surly stuff is made in China. QBP has many contacts in China because they import all the stuff they distribute from China. QBP knows China very well. QBP had Surly bike frames made in China from cheap Chinese steel. China is a huge steel producer. Hopefully QBP monitors closely the Chinese factories making the Surly frames. QBP can sell its Surly frames pretty cheaply in the US because it makes them very cheaply in China and still make a good profit. Good business plan. QBP already distributes to every bike shop in the US so they have the distribution network already established. Sell Surly frames and parts to the same shops they already serve. QBP saw the niche for old style nostalgic bike parts and they filled it with the Surly brand creation.
