Grammar question re: ASK

I'm the last person to find a bug in a grammar, but this production
doesn't look quite right:

[8]    AskQuery     ::=    	'ASK' (DatasetClause )? ( WhereClause )?

Doesn't it mean that this is a legal query:

ASK

That seems, well, odd. I would have expected the production to say:

[8]    AskQuery     ::=        'ASK' (DatasetClause )? WhereClause

I'm probably missing something obvious, but "ASK" doesn't seem like it can
be a legal query.

Best,
Kendall Clark
