the more research that comes out on functionalized trianing, the more I would agree with "warming-up" the system the way it is going to be used. In the case of higher intensity training, using active warm-ups (after proper myo-fascial release) may have better results than "passive stretching".

this makes me think that active stretching is even more usefull than passive.
