Howdy,
I'm in the process of putting together a proposal  to require the use of
Continuously Increasing SEQ_CNT for Class 3 only in FCP-4.
The basic reasoning is to allow for easier/earlier detection of missing
Sequences.
Note that IPoverFC and FC-SATA require the use of continuously
increasing SEQ_CNT. As such, most if not all current FC HBAs at minimum
should have the capability for supporting continuously increasing
SEQ_CNT.
Please respond if you have any objections along with your reasoning.
Thanks...Dave
