This looks like a error in SPL and it should be COMINIT. I will write a
proposal to change the COMWAKE to COMINIT.
Bye for now,

In section it says that when we enter this state if D.C. mode is
enabled then we send a COMINIT, however, if Optical Mode is enabled we send
OOB Idle for an RCDT time and then send a COMWAKE.
My question is why are we sending a COMWAKE instead of a COMINIT?
