Isn't the original statement on the transferred length limit correct?
There is one byte used for the mode data length field and that field can contain a maximum value of 0xFF=255 reporting that up to 255 bytes follow the 1 byte length field for a total limit on the transferred data to 256 bytes.
The block descriptors can't be 256 bytes so the first sentence that 21-109 proposes changing could at least use some help.
Sorry John/Fred, I couldn't think of any six syllable words to include early on a Monday.

I agree with the main intent of 21-109r0. However, in perhaps a vainglorious attempt to achieve r1 in 21-109, we could redress an anthropomorphism that has avoided our notice.
Should the proposed modified sentence "The MODE DATA LENGTH field in the six-byte CDB header limits the transferred data to 255 bytes" be further modified to "The size of the MODE DATA LENGTH field in the six-byte CDB header limits the transferred data to 255 bytes"?
Do we have a significant number of 'the field ... limits..." structures in SPC-6? I did a quick scan of the 110 instances of 'limits' in SPC-6r05 and didn't see any others. This is the only instance of "limits the".
(Thank you Fred, I rarely get to use six syllable words).
