Replace it with the {{more sources}} tag, I think. I find articles which use
{{unreferenced}} despite having references very irritating, because
{{unreferenced}} is only for totally unsourced articles. It's especially
annoying on articles with a lot of references, but one or two totally
unreferenced (And sometimes just sparsely referenced) sections.
