     Has there been any discussion of the actual implementation of the Read 
     Continuous bit.  As an old DASD hand (that old!) I'm extremely 
     reluctant to ever send bad data to the host without immediately so 
     stating.  However the spec seems to permit it.
     The question is are HDD's which support RC really sending bad data or 
     just using the RC as a global switch to minimize the length of error 
     Discussion, or a pointer there to would be appreciated.
