Ira,

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?

Carl-Uno

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)
