Yes it certainly looks like an error to me. I believe Byte 6 should be 
reserved. By copy I am asking the Chair of T10 to add this "error" to the 
agenda of the next meeting for resolution.

Dear Mr. Milligan,

In section 6.1.2 of the dpANS SCSI-3 Block Commands(SBC), the LOCK UNLOCK
CACHE command CDB has a five byte LBA.  I suspect it may be an error as it
is not backwards compatible to SCSI-2.  I would be grateful if you could
let me know if this is indeed an error as I'm writing code which is
dependent upon the answer.

Thanks very much!

Patrick Kiebach
