As I recall, these fields were made 8 bits because there was a proposal under 
consideration at the time to increase the number of SCSI addresses on the 
bus.  While that proposal did not get accepted, there is not much harm in the 
ECP fields being larger than needed.  At least for now, the upper 4 bits will 
always be zero.
