RE: [10GBASE-T] Proposed modification to PAR scope

Title: Message
For those that are curious, this is the current text we have for our scope:
The scope of this project is to specify additions to and appropriate modifications of IEEE Std 802.3 (including all approved amendments and corrigenda) to add a copper Physical Layer (PHY) specification.

I do not support this change. I think the PAR and objectives already make it perfectly clear that we are only defining a PHY.

Howard Frazier has proposed the following modification to the scope of the 10GBASE-T PAR to help narrow the focus and prevent the interpretation that the Study Group is planning to make modifications to the MAC, and to make sure the Study Group is focused on the horizontal structured copper cabling environment:

   Specify a Physical Layer (PHY) for operation at 10 Gb/s
   on horizontal structured copper cabling, using the existing
   Media Access Controller, and with extensions to the appropriate
   physical layer management parameters, of IEEE Std 802.3.

Is there any feedback on this proposed modification?
