For something to be seminal it only has to be first, and with a thorough literature review one can claim seminality for one's own work.

On a related note, not pertaining to the article in question; it is interesting to note how often "seminal" is confused with "good". There is great value in firsts, but they are frequently not good paragons of their form.
