Rick, you are right. prtConsoleOffTime = 0 means a light is "on" (and not 
blinking). Likewise, prtConsoleOnTime = 0 (or BOTH = 0) means the light is 
steady "off". I do think it may be valuable to promote these, applying 
this semantic.

Forgot to ask this today.  How does one tell remotely if a console light 
is turned on, e.g., some warning light?  The only method I can find is to 
look at the light times.  If OnTime is nz and OffTime is z, then the light 
is on, supposedly, I think; and v-v, if OnTime is z and OffTime is nz, 
thenthe light is off.  We didn't want these properties to be writable, as 
they were spec'ed in the MIB, because no one ever used them to blink the 
lights.  But they might be very useful to read if the controller 
manipulates them properly.  Anyone have any idea if controllers actually 
do that?  If so, do we want perhaps to promote these to A or still leave 
it up to the vendor as B?
