Thank you for your inputs.
Here you can find attached a new revision of the presentation, where I tried to include all the options suggested.
I think we may have a straw poll or a vote on that.
Please review and comment.
Please read the definition of "Link Section"
As 1st defined in Std 802.3af - 2003 (the first amendment to 802.3 adding PoE):
1.4.x Link Section: The portion of the link from the PSE to the PD.
And as currently defined in Std 802.3 - 2015 (I don't think it has been touched by any other project):
(PoDL would be the only likely one to do that and it did not.)
1.4.254 link section: The portion of the link from the PSE to the PD.
As you can see,
- it has been there as long as PoE has been in existence
- it has never changed
- it is precise
- it was created with a precise and specific relationship to the cabling term "Link Segment"
- it includes all of the cabling including the application specific end connectors
- it is exactly equivalent to a "link segment" when there is no mid-span involved.
Our TF chair has declared that it is not within our scope to fix cl. 33
so any action that I would like to take to purge the use of the term channel that has crept in to existing cl. 33 will have to be done by maintenance changes
but I will work to keep the problem from getting worse by the addition of 4-Pair.
