Re: XAUI AC coupling

Hello Rich,

Given the 4 choices you listed:

    1) Leave coupling out altogether as an implementation detail;
    2) Specify detail for both AC-coupling and DC-coupling.
    3) Mandate AC-coupling;
    4) Mandate DC-coupling.

I would have to vote for 3.

Choices 2 and 4 would have numbers in there for DC coupling. For many
reasons previously stated by others, that would be not be a good thing,e.g. 
compatibility, limitation on technologies,etc... As for 1, leaving coupling 
out altogether as an implementation detail, I think that that would leave 
things a bit too loose for the industry.
