May I participate in comments?

In the third lettered list (messages from the XL receiver) of Subclause 7.15.2 
XL transmitter and receiver, I believe the following messages are missing:
- OPEN_ACCEPT Received, and
- OPEN_REJECT Received.

Items (c) and (d) of the first lettered list of State description, 
define the conditions that generate Backoff Retry and Backoff Reverse Path 
responses, respectively.  Does the  XL6:Open_Response_Wait state manage these 
arbitration issues or is it done by the expander connection manager?
