ADIS16xyz DIO pins contention-tolerant?

Are the DIO pins on the ADIS16xyz devices (the ADIS16375 in particular) capable of tolerating bus contention when configured as outputs? 

 

Stated differently, would the DIO pins be damaged if a software error mis-configured one as an output, and tried to drive a logic high when the pin was connected to ground, or vice versa?  I've not found mention of pin current limits in the datasheet, and would like to know if series resistance is called for to guard against that possibility.
