T10/19-029r2 has been posted to update the FORMAT WITH PRESET command definition based on comment received to date.

The biggest change is removal of the sparse usage of format preset descriptors. The r1 proposal was found to be wasting too much precious non-volatile memory so that vendors might be able to assign meaning to the descriptor indices in the FORMAT WITH PRESET command. This was replaced with a preset identifier methodology in which an identifier in the command is matched to an identifier in one format preset descriptor.

This is the revision of the proposal that will be discussed during the conference call this coming Friday.
