[BLDG-SIM] ASHRAE 90.1-2004 App. G question (self-shading)

I have a question about the Appendix G baseline model defined in ASHRAE

In Table G3.1, it states: "The building shall be modeled so that it does
not shade itself." 

Aside from disabling the self-shading option in the model, does this
mean that shading from adjacent buildings should not be modeled for the
baseline buildings?  Does it matter if the adjacent buildings are part
of the same larger building project?

How was this handled in ASHRAE 90.1-1999, Chapter 11?  Should shading
from adjacent buildings be modeled in either the Proposed or Baseline
models for this version?

Thank you!
