Well, actually, the product on which I am currently implementing SCSI
will initiate negotiations prior to the command phase if the host hasn't
already done so. From the perspective of my code, if the initiator has
attempted Wide or Synchronous negotiations, then that is sufficient for
the drive to not initiate negotiations. I had not planned on implementing
a mode page to prevent this. Previously, integrators have balked at
implementing vendor unique mode pages. I would really like to know if
this will be a problem, especially with legacy initiators, so I can revise
