  I have questions as followings, if you know them please let me know.

For "Prevent Allow Medium Removal command"

    Mt.Fuji2/3,MMC-2 specification says,

    Byte 4
           bit0: Prevent
           bit1: Persistent 

    SCSI(SPC-2) says,

    Byte 4
           bit0: Prevent
           bit1: Prevent (attached medium changer)

  SPC byte 4:bit1 is for medium changer as juke box, but Mt.Fuji2/3,MMC-2
are not same meaning[feature].

  It is conflicting, which description is popular ?

For "Get Configuration command"

  I think, "Get Configuration command" was proposed to place at SPC 
specification. Will it be there soon or not ?
