<snip>The 63 columns of fixed stuff are required to accommodate WIS mapping.
3. The use of those 63 columns be optionally available for payload
codewords. New addition.
4. That the choice of this new option be encoded in a new C2 Signal
Label codepoint, value tbd. New addition.
No functional changes are involved -- this is an optional addition. I
will write the text for the necessary addition
after I have obtained a copy of the document.
In my view, if you choose to "optimize" the SPE by adding a proprietary
protocol into the 63 columns which shall be specified as stuff, that
implementation falls outside the requirements for the standard since
there could potentially be a large number of codewords to which ALL
equipment would then have to respond.
In other words: You can do what you want with the fixed stuff
optimize the architecture of your design. You can not expect every one
else to be compliant with this implementation.
