[10GBASE-T] Auto-Negotiation Support

Is the study group considering the PCI and PCI-E power management
requirements for an add-in adapter implementation of 10GBASE-T? To my
knowledge the low power management requirement can only be met by the
current 1000Base-T controllers when running at 10/100 Mpbs. Hence, I can see
the need for supporting auto-negotiation that includes 100Base-T and
1000Base-T. The controller should be able to negotiate down to 100 Mbps when
operating in a lower power mode i.e. Wake on LAN or remote management(ASF,
