Panasonic have the similar comment on Zero Power proposal.
We are also concerned about Slot-in drive.
In the case of Slot-in drive, pushing of eject button is not necessary
to trigger the Power on, because pushing the eject button does not
require any drive action since there is no media in the drive when the
drive is in Zero Power mode.
But instead, the media insertion by the operator must be informed. For
this implementation, the opposite signal polarity should be allowed.
