TRL calibration in Pozar's book

I notice that TRL calibration in David M. Pozar's book Microwave Engineering page  193 (3rd edition) has a different description. It says "It is not necessary to know the length of the line and it is not required that the line be lossless...". However, in Agilent TRL appnotes have already stated that we must know the characteristics of the standards Thru, Reflect and Line.

Can someone explain on this issue?

Thanks a lot.
