Link Status Signaling Clarification

Title: Link Status Signaling Clarification

Rich, need clarification on the following:

 "..The purpose of link status reporting is to quickly identify and convey link status conditions to the RS which can take the necessary action..."

 "Link status signaling follows the detection or recognition of a link status condition and involves the generation of Sequence ordered-sets by the PCS transmit process."

I interpret this to mean:
  When the 10GBASE-X PCS detects a fault condition, it sends the local fault message to the RS and the transmits the LF Sequence ordered set to the PMA. 

Please confirm.
