There was a transcribe error on my part. Item 1 in section 18.104.22.168.1 should
have been stated as
1) initialize and start the SNTT timer and the SNLT timer;
The sentence in section 22.214.171.124.3 " Receipt of the ALIGN Received (1) message
indicates that the connected phy has been able to achieve dword
synchronization with the previously negotiated settings." does not belong in
a transition section and will be deleted from that section. It will either
move to another section or be removed pending a discussion at the next
Bye for now,

In your posting of 09-063r1 today, section 126.96.36.199 has the timer changed
|from SNLT to SNTT from the original 2008 proposal.
1) Is this in fact correct that the timer is changed
2) If so, there is still a reference to SNLT in 188.8.131.52.3 (a), I assume this
should also be SNTT.
If SNLT in this section is correct, then SNLT is missing initialization
(starting) and any consequent actions on SNLT expiring in the PS states.
Secondly, regarding section 184.108.40.206.3 "footnote" of:
"Receipt of the ALIGN Received (1) message indicates that the connected phy
has been able to achieve dword synchronization with the previously negotiated
1) Does this only apply to the 220.127.116.11.3 transition and not to the 18.104.22.168.3
transition to ALIGN1 state? Ie ALIGN0 state can transition to ALIGN
regardless of DWS sync?
If so, I would like to suggest that maybe just 22.214.171.124.3 "a" should just
"a) If the DWS is synced, and this state receives an ALIGN Received (1)
message before the SNTT timer expires..."
because other places in the phy spec the ALIGN Received message does not
imply the DWS is synced. I think it would be clearer and more consistent.
