NAA originated in T11 so we (T10) should not be changing it.

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,
.Ralph
