Think about TBL as a (living) document, and you'll see it another way.

Why not? What is the fundamental difference between :
On the subject 'History of Internet', see 
On the subject 'History of Internet', see 

None of those assertions says how you will *use* those resources : read 
the story, follow the link, or ask/write/phone TBL himself if you can 
... They both say that the resource is relevant to the subject.
