The latest revision of FC-FS-4 contains 0 instances of Name Address
Authority and 6 of Network Address Authority.
So... Is T10 going to follow the lead of the other standard that uses
NAA in the way that SPC-4 does? Or, is original intent more important
than consistent terms of reference today?
Since something has to change in SPC-4 either way, the workload for the
editor seems to be of little consequence in this decision.
All the best,
