Although the most recent draft of SPC-2 describes the BQue bit and references
SAM-2 for a definition of the basic task management model, a concordance of
SAM-2 reveals no instances of the use of the word "basic."

Where is the basic task management model? Why is it not specified by SAM-2?

Some time ago the SCSI working group (and subsequently the T10 plenary)
approved this new model of task management; it is integral to RBC devices.
