In looking at SAS-2 it appears that all external connectors that support 
6G are supposed to have slot 3 on the connector.  Likewise the cables are 
supposed to have key 3 if they are for 6G (i..e, too long for 3G).  Yet 
when searching for cables and HBA's on the web, we do not see any cables 
or HBA's that have key/slot 3.
Am I missing an understanding here?
