I agree with the idea in general, but the wording is extremely poor.
"Reference" is not a computer-technical term. 

We have dwww and doc-base, where docs in /usr/share/doc can be registered
and displayed for browsing. Is this a reference?

The definition: Nothing must fail if the files are deleted is much better,
