The list of changes includes:

1.  Revised ADC model to change concept of partitioned SMC device server

2.  Banned splitting the Bridging Login IU across multiple frames.

3.  Clarified that the bridging manager may initiate commands to remote

4.  To support caching of inquiry, etc. data by the data transfer device,
an asynchronous notification IU from the automation to the drive is now

Please send me your comments.
