John, I'd like just a little more context to my answer above, suggested
words below.  I think I said words to this affect at the meeting, but I
freely admit I don't recall my exact words.  The distinction I care about is
that this is a marketing question, not a technical or protocol development

Bill Ham asked if it made any sense to run SVP over FC-VI.  Ed responded
that this was fundamentally a marketing question, not related to the
technical development or specification of SVP.  However, the prior existence
of FCP and its installed base of devices would probably relegate use of SVP
over FC-VI to testing, product prototype or niche applications.
