The spell checker tells me there is no such word as "quiesce".
I must admit that I also have problems with "quiescent", it
is not exactly an everyday word, and I suspect that any non-native
English person would:
1) Have to look it up in a dictionary to understand the meaning
2) Be totally clueless about how to pronounce it
I am speaking from personal experience here, revealing my ignorance.
Not recommended for an international standard if you ask me...
Can't we find a synonym word somehow?

Printer versus D evice object and operation semantics
One minor nit:
'devices-quiescent-failed' should have been
'devices-quiesce-failed' (the verb, not the adjective)
