Disk vendors have raised concerns in the T10 SBP-2 working group that they
may not be able to support split time-out values below some minimum value.

Independently, I believe that all nodes on a bus need to share the same split
time-out value and that the responder's behavior after expiration of the
time-out needs to be specified.

I propose the text in 97-050r0 for section 9 of P1394a. The proposal is
available at
