Sort of ...

Table 56 would not reference any particular documents; instead, the new 
VERSION DESCRIPTOR code would describe the contents of the version 
descriptor as an EUI-48 that would in turn reference a document. The 
document would be available from the company or organization identified by 
the 24-bit OUI portion of the EUI-48.
