Greg,

Is my understanding right that IF in the course of disscusion,
it turns out that the contents of Function discovery is
more suitable for the 1394 spec and not 1212,
the target of our proposal may change ?

I believe that we already have general concensus on what
information (not yet how....) should be put in the Function
discovery scheme.(In Japan)

P.S.
Many PWG-C members would like to know how this Function discovery
turned out to be a 1212 issue, not a 1394 issue.
