Is the 4GB barrier really only a problem for
devices that report peripheral device type
0b00000 in response to an x12 inquiry?

How about a new device type meaning media
aliased by LUN?

Or would it be just as much work to teach
the host to deal with aliased media as it
would be to teach the host to break up more
than 4GB into chunks it can handle?
