I apologize for potentially unauthorized changes in the draft SPC-2.
The changes were introduced when SPC-2 was cloned from the SPC draft.
The changes follow identically the changes made between SCSI-2 and
SPC, which were not the subject of a formal committee vote to the
best of my knowledge.  I must also note that some change in the
ANSI Version field is necessary and that this change would have
to be viewed as the customary practice.



} The editor has jumped the gun and made a change to Table 22 [Table 20]
} that I believe was not authorized by T10. As pointed out long ago
} the apportionment of bits in Byte 2 of the Standard INQUIRY data
} format does not align with activity that is taking place in the
} relevant standards bodies and trade association.
} This byte causes confusion as to how it should be interpreted.
} I suggest that the byte be made obsolete and the machine readable
} version proposal be reconsidered. The first part of this suggestion
} should be the first step.
