          I would like to make a suggestion in response to the
          proposed changes to the SCSI-3 CD-ROM command set.  I
          would also like to see the READ TOC command updated in
          SCSI-3 with a 2 bit format field.   Many SCSI CDROM vendors
          (Sony, Matsushita, Hitachi...) have already added a 2 bit
          format field in the READ TOC command(byte 9, bits 6 & 7) to
          support multisession discs.  For compatibility, it would be
          nice to define this same location in the SCSI-3 spec.  Are
          there any implications with using this location?  Is this
          how it is mapped in the ATAPI version?
