To me it sounds like one of those "black magic witchcraft" advices.
Just make sure that the traces are short, impedance is matched, no stabs exist and that there're no discontinuities in the reference plane.
Your plane can be:
Vdd, Vcc, Vss, GND...whatever. As long as it's conductive and without discontinuities you'll be fine.
