Discussed these concepts at 2007-08-23 telecon and t 2007-08-29 F2F. The WG

1. The concept "empty reference" does not carry any significant meaning, and is
no different from any other non-null references. So we should remove the
definition of "empty reference" (if any) and any references to it.

2. SML and SML-IF specs mentions "dangling references" and "unresolved
references". They seem to be for the same concept. Some WG members feel that
"dangling" implies a meaning that's not always true. WG decided to remove and
replace "dangling" references with "unresolved" references.
