We need to invoke some login(s) to make some fetch agents.
I don't like it, because,...

1) Multiple logical channel shell be involved with a LUN.
For example, FAX LUN may have several logical channels.
According to the current profile document, we are
required to invoke login(s) to a LUN or to some LUNs.

2) However Sekine-san told us, a consumer OS invokes one
login to a LUN.

3) So we need to have a facility to provide MLC in a single
ORB List.

The current profile document is good and well designed. Even
so we need to revise some points to make it is executable on
existing Operating System.
