Yes - they can.
instance (MonadTrans t, Monad (t m),
Reference r m) => Reference r (t m) where
newRef = lift . newRef
readRef = lift . readRef
writeRef r = lift . writeRef r
instance (MonadIO m, Reference r IO) => Reference r m where
newRef = liftIO . newRef
readRef = liftIO . readRef
writeRef r = liftIO . writeRef r

Actually the primary need was to create mutable single-linked list for
iteratee-parsec. I didn't wanted to restrict myself to ST or IO so I
choose to add class for them.
