The ANSI Editor has asked that T10 consider whether the reference to
ANSI/IEEE 1212-1994 should be replaced by a reference to ANSI/IEEE
1212-2001 for the purpose of defining the Directory ID field contents
 in the  EUI-64 based 12-byte identifier (nee designator) format.

Reference 329 (PDF page 355) in:

   http://www.t10.org/ftp/t10/drafts/spc3/spc3r23.pdf

The ANSI Editor's comments are as follows:

} Database, ANSI/IEEE 1212-1994 was superseded by ANSI/IEEE 1212-2001. 
Judging
} from the scope of that standard, ISO/IEC 13213:1994 was also probably 
updated.
} We cannot change the reference without causing a substantive change. 
However,
} the committee should be aware of this for future revisions. (The 
standard is
} mentioned in the text in 7.6.3.5.3.)

Please be prepared to discuss this question at the CAP WG meeting
next week.

Thanks,

.Ralph
