In regard to Walter Bridgewater's comment:

The C/D, I/O and MSG signals must be valid 400 ns (a bus settle delay) before 
can be asserted.  These signals are, therefore, stable long before the transfer 
and do not change during the transfer, so no change need be made to the 
of these signals unless we are planning to change bus settle delay.  

The BSY, ATN, SEL and RST lines do not change during a transfer, so their 
need not change either.

I agree that REQ, ACK, REQQ, ACKQ, data and parity need to be changed.

/SCSI Reflector,
/I agree that at least ack, req, data & parity have to be differential
/for the reasons Tak suggest.
/If the other 7 signals are single ended, 
/Then their slew rates should be slowed down proportional to any
/length increase beyond 3 meters.
