Something that pops up in other discussions about references to Internet
documents is the importance of quoting the date of reference. Since
online versions change over time without necessarily going through "1st
ed.", "2nd ed.", etc, fixing the version in time is a good idea.

And do you think I can find a single other discussion about this right
now? Nooooo. I'm sure I have read half a dozen of them over the past
couple of years, but Google is not my friend today. :-(

The only useful bookmarked reference I have is

which does mention the importance of dating the reference.
