have found two issues for which the collective wisdom of the SAT experts is
  1.  What is the correct SAT-3 translation specification for the Power
Conditions mode page PM_BG_PRECEDENCE field?
  2.  In SAT-3 r05b, the Power Conditions mode page bit that indicates a
power condition is enabled (e.g., the STANDBY_Y bit) *always* is derived from
the CURRENT TIMER ENABLED bit in the equivalent ATA log, without regard for
the value in the Page Control (PC) field in the CDB. ACS-3 defines a DEFAULT
TIMER ENABLED bit and a SAVED TIMER ENABLED bit. Wouldn't these be more
appropriate sources when the PC field specifies default and saved values,
