I do not care where the bit goes.  Byte 2, bit 7 is fine with me.  Gene 
Milligan also sent me an email on this topic (which didn't go to the reflector,
I think).  He suggested byte 4, bit 5 for similar reasons.  Your suggestion
really gets DRC out of the way.

I looked through the X3T9.2 document register when I prepared the proposal
and didn't find any matches on 'control', so I missed the accepted proposals.
(No, I didn't check George's document -- I was in a hurry and knew I'd get
corrected if I missed anything :-)

Amen!  I plan to introduce a motion withdrawing the SBC project if we do
not get a volunteer to edit the document soon.
