During yesterday's ZBC conference call, a few letter ballot comments stirred
up a tempest in a teacup over a mismatch between SBC-4 and ZBC in the
definition of what the commentators call the maximum LBA returned by READ
CAPACITY.
Some architectural context is described and a proposal to drain the swamp is
offered in the newly posted

Although I do not set the agenda for the Monday ZBC calls, the local Ouija
board hints that this document might be a topic for discussion during the 2
February e-gathering.
All the best,
