[sc34wg3] Undated references?

In section 2, first paragraph, the latest TMDM reads (in part):

"For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document 
(including any amendments) applies."

I assume there is ambiguity in what is meant by "undated reference" 
because in reading the list of documents, in one sense they are all 
"dated" as dates are given.

Do you mean references that don't have a date in the unique identifier?

If so, then the dated references sentence is unnecessary since none of 
the resources are identified by unique identifiers with dates.

In that case, you could replace the last two sentences with:

"The latest edition of any referenced document (including any 
amendments) applies."

Hope you are having a great day!
