RDA 6.23.2.9.2 says: “For books of the Catholic or Protestant canon, record the brief citation form of the Authorized Version as a subdivision of the preferred title for the Bible.”

Is my interpretation correct that “Authorized Version” here is not meant in a general sense of “some standard version”, but rather as a reference to a specific English version of the Bible, namely the King James Bible?
