In SBC3r27, in the Format Unit initialization pattern descriptor
subclause 5.3.2.3, there is a statement regarding the SI bit precedence:
"An SI bit set to one shall take precedence over any other FORMAT UNIT
CDB field."
What is this statement supposed to mean specifically?
It seems as though the statement was added some time ago in SBCr6:
ftp://ftp.t10.org/t10/t10r/1996/r9610141.htm
"Clarified SI by adding the statement An SI bit set to one shall take
precedence over any other FORMAT UNIT field."
I could not find any proposals associated with the modification.
Thanks,
