Hi Doug,
I'm not sure what happened.  I started to set up the field in the table,
then I didn't finish with the "straddle" operation and typing in the name.
I'll correct this in the next revision of the draft standard.  In the
meantime, the PROVISIONING TYPE field is in bits 2 to 0 in byte 6 in the
Logical Block Provisioning VPD page.
Please feel free to call or send an email to me with any comments or
questions that you have about this stuff.

Reference is made to PROVISIONING TYPE field in the words
of section 6.5.4 but no such field appears in table 181.
Sections and also refer to that field.
