 Not a helpful decision since both the host and the drive have a controller.

 This may be a good decision but! If the XOR is to end up in the SBC this 
decision should not be expanded to all instances of data in SBC. Therefore the 
decision should be taken in the light of SBC not just SCC.

 If it is going into SBC it should be the same as SBC. I think SBC is Microsoft
