I have just posted the latest revision of the iADT proposal: 
      URL: http://www.t10.org/ftp/t10/document.07/07-469r8.pdf
I decided not to attempt to address any of the questions raised by Kevin Butt
in IBM's T10/08-332r0, such as:
*	Support for short-lived connections, i.e., not having connection loss
cause I_T nexus loss.
*	Specifying what to do if a connection cannot be established.
*	Relevance of the Sensea signal.
*	Removing all references to Ethernet.
*	Specifying signals to facilitate locating the drive in a library.
These will require discussion and a consensus of the group.  I request that
everyone review Kevin's presentation and be prepared to discuss the above
points (and any that I may have missed).
