I wrote in my notes during the meeting that I felt like the working group was
leaning towards a new log page since even the existing temperature value
would probably need duplicated into another parameter code using a different
format to allow reporting negative temperatures so there was very little
I would support having a new environmental log page and leaving the current
temperature page as is.

Subject: Advice about renaming the Temperature log page
During discussion of proposal 13-253, about adding new environmental
parameters, i was told to "change the name of the Temperature log page to
Environmental Conditions log page". If I do this, it means that many new
standards (SPC-x, SBC-x, SSC-x, others?) will have to be updated to reference
the new name. Implementations to older standards (e.g., a device claiming to
implement SBC-3 and SPC-4) might have a hard time describing the new
parameters (intended for the log page with a new name but same page number)
if they implement them.
Should I actually create a new log page (probably page 0Dh, subpage 01h)
instead of renaming the existing page? I suspect this would be better at
maintaining compatibility with existing documents/ implementations.
