Predicitive Failure Codes

There are several SCSI drive manufacturers that are claiming the
ability to predict drive failure within some number of hours or days.
Apparently, when this failure is predicted by the drive, a vendor
unique error code is returned in Request Sense Data. Is there an
effort to standardize such error messages? Does anyone know any more
about predictive failure analysis and how the drive can make such a
bold assertion? If you are a manufacturer of such a drive, please
contact me with more information.
If there is currently no effort to standardize, is anyone willing to
spearhead such an effort?
