I'd agree with this - it is possible, but you need to be careful. File
the plating off to make a good surface, and use a POWERFUL (but not
excessively hot) iron, and the SHORTEST time - a low-power iron will
take much longer to heat the joint sufficiently, potentially causing
more damage. You should be aiming to be applying the iron for no more
than 2-3 seconds. Metcal irons with the bigger bits are perfect for
this type of work as they can dump lots of power into the joint
quickly without temperature overshoot.

Applying some flux to the battery surface first also helps speed
things up.
With practice, it's not hard to solder to batteries without damage,
but it's always better to use tabs if they're already there.
Another alternative, which works well, especially for coin cells,   is
conductive epoxy.
