I updated the volume lifetime remaining parameter to clarify that this is related to usage and not how long the magnetic recording can last (e.g., 30 years). Yes, somebody did ask me if this parameter was indicating how much of 30 years the cartridge had left. :-)
I also changed "indicates" to "contains" so it matches the rest of the parameters in log page 17h.
