We did discuss this at the September meeting, but the issue page
didn't get updated correctly. The revised text was supposed to be
this:

For a reference, the value is a reference to another DIE.  This DIE may
    -- describe a variable which contains the attribute value
    -- describes a constant which is the attribute value
    -- contain a DWARF expression which computes the attribute value
or is a dwarf procedure which computes the attribute
value

(Even as is, I think the wording is just a little off. We may need to
tweak it a bit.)
