MMC WG Members:
Hattori-san (Sanyo) has noted that the READ DVD STRUCTURE function 31h that
was originally in the DVD+MRW proposal is not present in MMC4R02g.

Function is an optional function that permits reading the Main Table Area of
a MRW disc for the purpose of disaster recovery.  There is no equivalent
function for writing the MTA.  If there are no objections, I shall correct
this omission.
