If IEEE expects companies to use a single company_id until the number space
based on that company_id is "substantially exhausted", then will IEEE expect
SCSI implementations to use substantially all values associated with an
IEEE Registered Extended format?  Or, will IEEE be generous and allow
a company to obtain a new company_id when the number space associated
with the IEEE Registered Name format is substantially exhausted?

Stated differently, will IEEE (by virtue of their "substantially exhausted"
requirement) force FC implementations to use the 128-bit format instead of
the 64-bit format?
