BUILDING has this to say:

     Note: This document applies only to platforms which use the new toolchain
     as indicated by the default setting of TOOLCHAIN_MISSING in <>.
     Platforms which have not yet been switched to the new toolchain should
     continue building traditionally, using the notes specified in the file

In a nutshell, you use _or_ UPDATING (with the much
more preferred method).  Maybe some wording should be cleared up to make
this more explicit.
