I have uploaded a proposal for consideration of reporting the reservation 
holder of an SPC-2 reservation (i.e., RESERVE(6) or RESERVE(10)) using the 
PERSISTENT RESERVE IN - READ FULL STATUS.  When I started this proposal it 
seemed like a quick and easy thing that could be accomplished by simply 
defining a single new bit in the READ FULL STATUS descriptor and 
everything would be perfect.  I was hoping to get it through with only 
minor edits during CAP.
Alas, this involves Persistent Reservations.  You should all know what 
that means! (>_<)> 
It turned out to be a lot bigger than I anticipated.
Any arrows you could send at me ahead of time would be appreciated.
