I like your wording changes for items 1, 2, and 3. Your proposal for item

>a) an error condition was encountered after command completion;
>b) a newly initialized device is available;
>c) some other type of unit attention condition has occurred; or
>d) an asynchronous event has occurred.
>Examination of the list indicated that only the first entry should be
>covered by the sentence in question.  With this in mind (plus a few
>editorial changes), the replacement sentence reads:
>Notification of an error condition encountered after command completion
>shall be returned only to the initiator that sent the affected task.
I think "a deferred error" should replace the phrase "an error condition
encountered afer command completion". This is a well defined term that
covers the case you want to describe and uses less words.
