Based on the ZBC interface simplification ideas introduced for the REPORT
ZONES command in 14-212 (see
http://www.t10.org/cgi-bin/ac.pl?t=d&f=14-212r0.pdf), some WD engineers have
asked whether additional reductions in complexity might be accomplished by
moving the contents of the Zoned Block Device VPD page to the amply spacious
header of the REPORT ZONES parameter data.
To this end, a detailed proposal has been uploaded for review during Monday's
ZBC call:

All the best,
