During the October T13 Plenary, the committee informally agreed that SBC-4
should define the long-discussed Access Hints formats and that ACS-4 will
reference SBC-4 for the field value definitions. Therefore, a proposal to
effect the definitions in SBC-4 has been added to the November CAP agenda and
uploaded.

Assuring a consistent Logical Block Markup Descriptor format between SCSI and
ATA was left as an exercise for T13 members, but the challenge should not be
too daunting as a consistent data structure definition already exists in a
posted T13 document.
