Does anyone know if Initiators would have a problem with a target which 
renegotiated on a reselection. The SCSI spec do not seem to disallow this.

For example, an Initiator sends the Target a READ command and allows 
disconnection. The Target disconnects at the end of Command phase. At some 
time later the Target reconnects and transfers some data and disconnects. 
The Target then  reconnects (reselection) again to send some more data and 
decides to renegotate( sends WDTR and or SDTR messages after sending the 
Identify message).
