Not likely.  

You probably should be referring to spi5r06 rather than
spi4r10, though.

The page derived from proposal 00-392 in October 2000.  r0 
only supported DB, P1, and P_CRCA; r1 added all the other
signals because equalizing receivers might have values to 
report for these other signals.  The meaning of the values
is vendor-specific, so they don't all have to be used.

You need to delete this signature when posting to the T10
