Just posted is ftp://ftp.t10.org/t10/document.02/02-075r0.pdf. It proposes 
a new VPD page to permit the identification of protocols supported by 
devices whose command set (e.g., processor devices) is so generic that it 
is difficult, if not impossible, to discover additional functions.

At present vendor-specific methods are the only ones available to provide 
additional information about processor devices. There is no standard format 
for the messages exchanged by SEND and RECEIVE. The proposed use of EUI-48 
to identify standard message sets enables devices from different vendors to 
interoperate.

Agenda time has been requested the SCSI Commands and Protocol (CAP) working 
group in Dallas.
