I've posted the latest revision of iADT, for discussion in this afternoon's
teleconference. It is significantly different from r0.
Eleventh revision <http://www.t10.org/ftp/t10/document.08/08-409r0.pdf> (3
Incorporated changes from an offline discussion with IBM.
Eliminated the concept of distinct ADT and ADT interconnect ports in favor of
having an ADT port which may include multiple sessions.
Defined session to be an association between two ADT ports which is begun by
a login and terminated by a logout (explicit or implicit). A session
persists across multiple connections.
Modified layering diagrams to be consistent with SAM-4 Figure 31, Protocol
service reference model.
For consistency with SAM-4, replaced connection layer "protocol services"
with "connection services" and changed some indications into confirmations.
Added Sent connection service confirmation.
Split Disconnected service indication into Disconnected service confirmation
and Disconnect Received service indication.
