Bill, I appreciate your response. I agree that subUnitStatus should be
part of our test plan if possible.

I'm not sure I recognize the distinction between what you refer to as
"paper out for the printer" vs. the subUnit, however. Since the alert
table entry includes group and group index, I've always viewed the
alert as fundamentally subUnit specific.

Of course, here again is possibly why we're in need of interop testing!
