Address match lists syntax, was Managing localhost

I found a number of allow-query {localhost;}; and similar stuff in my .conf 
files.  It doesn't seem to be allowed, since the manual says:

     The elements which constitute an address match list can be any of the

       *  an IP address (IPv4 or IPv6)
       *  an IP prefix (in `/' notation)
       *  a key ID, as defined by the key statement
       *  the name of an address match list defined with the acl statement
       *  a nested address match list enclosed in braces

However, named-checkconf doesn't complain.   I could fix that by defining an 
acl named localhost.  But do I need to?
