Subject: Can we obsolete the Read Continuous bit?
I have the impression that the READ CONTINUOUS bit, in the READ WRITE
RECOVERY mode page, is not used by anyone.  I think it boils down to everyone
wanting data that can be trusted, even in video applications. Does anyone
have an application that justifies keeping this feature?
