RE: [10GBASE-T] Proposed modification to PAR scope
those that are curious, this is the current text we have for our
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.

Is there any
feedback on this proposed modification?
