8.2.4 The Reference Specification Type

I'm trying to decode section 8.2.4
The Reference Specification Type

I believe that it is trying to say
  obj.prop = ...
obj is reference base
prop is reference name

But base can also be Boolean, String, Number and env. record. I can't
figure out what a reference name means in these cases. I guess the |name|
is only relevant for Object, in which case the spec would be clearer if we
called it a |property key|, as in
  GetReferencedPropertyKey(V). Returns the referenced property key
component of the reference V.
