>From a pure language point of view, F.3 is a table for readiness
'errors' and I believe the background format progress is not an error
but an indication. So maybe F.3 is not the best table.

Hello Bill,
I have a question about the ASC/ASCQ to be returned during the
background format process of MRW and DVD+RW formatting.
According to MMC5r02c.pdf, it is specified to set the sense byte to NO
SENSE with FORMAT IN PROGRESS as follows.
    Regardless of the setting of IMMED, once the disc has become write
    accessible, and there are no pendingerrors, sense bytes SK/ASC/ASCQ
    shall be set to NO SENSE/FORMAT IN PROGRESS and the sense
    keyspecific bytes (Table 260) shall be set as a progress indicator.
But in Table F.3, only LOGICAL UNIT NOT READY, FORMAT IN PROGRESS
(ASC/ASCQ=04/04) is defined with NOT READY sense key.
My questions are,
- Does the FORMAT IN PROGRESS in the above definition for the background
  format process mean ASC/ASCQ=04/04?
- Are you going to add the 0/04/04 to Table F.3? If so, the name
  "LOGICAL UNIT NOT READY, FORMAT IN   PROGRESS" is not approrpiate,
  because the Logical Unit is not NOT READY.
