</span></span></span><![endif]><span style="font-size:11.0pt;font-family:&quot;Calibri&quot;,sans-serif;color:#1F497D">My recollection of the discussion during the T10 meeting was that item e) “scrambled idle segments” was originally removed from the exclusion (don’t
 count for completion) list was because the group thought that these were not identified as “deletable primitives” and therefore should be counted for completion.&nbsp; But, further examination revealed that these should NOT be counted for completion. (not because
 these were “deletable primitives” but because they are discarded at the phy layer directly).&nbsp; This means that the original reason to strike item e) “scrambled idle segments” from the list was mistaken.&nbsp; It was taken off the list because it was thought it should
 be counted and not skipped, but it needs to be skipped.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
<p class="MsoListParagraph" style="text-indent:-.25in;mso-list:l0 level1 lfo2"><![if !supportLists]><span style="font-size:11.0pt;font-family:&quot;Calibri&quot;,sans-serif;color:#1F497D"><span style="mso-list:Ignore">2.<span style="font:7.0pt &quot;Times New Roman&quot;">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
</span></span></span><![endif]><span style="font-size:11.0pt;font-family:&quot;Calibri&quot;,sans-serif;color:#1F497D">The current argument to have item e) “scrambled idle segments” stricken from the list seems to be that sections 6.2.4.6 and 6.2.4.7 are referring to
 the link layer only, but this doesn’t seem to be the case.&nbsp; The start of the sentence in question is “Receivers shall detect…”&nbsp; It doesn’t say “The link layer shall process...” or some similar language indicating that it is only referring to link layer processing.&nbsp;
 I know this is in the link layer chapter, but to us the words the “Receivers shall detect…” seem very unambiguous as to requirements on the phy layer hardware (i.e. the transmitter and receiver).&nbsp; It seems to us that the transmitter and receiver are clearly
 in the phy layer.&nbsp; So there appears to be some mixed discussion in this chapter between phy layer and link layer.&nbsp; For this reason too, we think item e) “scrambled idle segments” belong in the exclusion lists in sections 6.2.4.6 and 6.2.4.7.<o:p></o:p></span></p>

 by the committee, but we had a question about the figures included in the document “SPL4 chapter6-updated.pdf” provided for review.&nbsp; It seems to us that figure 131 and 133 do not have the updated figures showed in the meeting.&nbsp; We do not see the “idle dword

<p class="MsoNormal">So Patrick, your engineers at Toshiba re correct that a scrambled idle segment is something that is deletable. The issue for SPL-4 standard is that this figure and text is intended to describe only those items that are handled at the link
 layer. Since the scrambled idle segment is deleted at a lower level than the link layer, they will never arrive at the link layer and do not have to be described in that part of the state machine.<o:p></o:p></p>
