We sort of have a product that does this, but perhaps not in the way you're
interested in.  We capture and analyze CDBs being sent across SCSI, ATAPI,
1394, and USB bus architectures on Windows systems.  We can show you what
the CDB is being sent, the bytes requested, the bytes returned, and quite a
bit more.  Details are here:

15 day fully functional evaluation for those that are interested.

In terms of sending down your own custom CDBs, or doing T10 compliance, I
personally have not used any such software (as I just write my own code as
needed).  There is one product at that might be a
match.  I remember seeing a couple of other packages but I don't know if
they're still around.
