I'd say that documentation is quite outdated.
I'm using a GPG card in a Gemalto Shelltoken and a Yubikey Neo as
smartcards for SSH and GPG keys - both have an USB connector, but none
of them has any USB/serial capabilities.
I'm using those for some time now, and I don't really remember any
special configuration - you'd need pcsc-lite, opensc and ccid.
OTOH, there's a line "disable-ccid" in my scdaemon.conf (that's
for gpg), so maybe ccid is not really required? I should've taken
more notes, but at that time the whole thing felt quite straight-forward.
My setup is still on 10.3, but that shouldn't make that much difference.

Regards,
Christoph
