Just one small rock... "RECOVERED ERROR" is a sense key, not a status code.
It is appropriate to use CHECK CONDITION status with RECOVERED ERROR sense 
key.  By the time the initiator has the RECOVERED ERROR sense key, it
also has the sense data (whether by autosense or by REQUEST SENSE).

That is why I lobbied for case a).
