RE: Nomenclature update


The X implies block encoding (as it did in 100BASE-TX, 100BASE-FX,
1000BASE-X).  The 64/66 and 8b10b are both forms of block encoding.  The W
implies that there is a SONET compatible framing that is used.  The term
that we've assigned to this has generally been a WAN PHY, so I choose to use
the W.

		I think your nomenclature is what got me confused over the
media coding
		schemes.  You list X for 64b66b and W for wan, but there is
nothing for 8b10b
		over cwdm - or is it just implied?  If it is implied, we
should add one just
		because it is confusing without it :).

		Take care
