We have found issues with using mode pages for certain device 
configuration items.  The problem is that some configuration items get 
modified inadvertently when an application client is attempting to modify 
a different configuration item.  This occurs since mode pages become a 
collection of disparate items.	I am contemplating bringing in a proposal 
to add a "device attributes" for configuration - similar to Read/Write 
Attributes but target at the device instead of MAM.
Is this something that is worth attempting?
