The September CAP discussions strongly recommended making an effort to define a Hot Plug bit in the Standard INQUIRY Data.
http://www.t10.org/cgi-bin/ac.pl?t=d&f=20-114r0.pdf does that.

If the November CAP group shows a distinct preference for the Hot Plug bit definition over the RMBQ bit definition (see http://www.t10.org/cgi-bin/ac.pl?t=d&f=20-087r0.pdf), then 20-087 will be withdrawn from further discussions. After careful consideration, the WD Engineers who originated the RMBQ bit definition see the proposed Hot Plug bit definition as a reasonable equivalent for use in UAS-x devices. Hopefully, the Hot Plug bit can be used more widely while continuing to be defined in a UAS-friendly way.

Talk to you all during the first week of November.

All the best, .Ralph
