I am requesting that a late letter ballot comment be opened against SPC-4 
as follows:
The CLEAR service action of PERSISTENT RESERVE OUT needs to remove the 
medium removal prevention caused by the PREVENT ALLOW MEDIUM REMOVAL 
command the same a PREEMPT AND ABORT does as specified in 5.13.11.2.6 
Preempting and aborting
h) for logical units that implement the PREVENT ALLOW MEDIUM REMOVAL 
command (see SBC-3,
SSC-3, and SMC-3), the device server shall perform an action equivalent to 
the processing of a
PREVENT ALLOW MEDIUM REMOVAL command with the PREVENT field equal to zero 
received on
the I_T nexuses associated with the persistent reservation being 
preempted.
Needs to be placed in the list of actions listed in 5.13.11.2.7 Clearing
