[EFM] My bad

Dear Members of the IEEE 802.3ah EFM Task Force,

I made a booboo.  In the course of updating our list
of objectives to reflect the decisions we made at the
March meeting in St. Louis, I introduced a typo into
the objective for 100 Mbps fiber.  My thanks
to Paul Kolesar for catching this mistake.

Based on the motions adopted by 802.3ah and 802.3,
the objective for 100 Mbps fiber should read:

100BASE-X >= 10km over SM fiber

Note that the objective is silent on the number (one or two)
of single mode fibers.  I have updated the objectives slides
from March and May to reflect this correction.

Please don't read anything into this correction.
All of the decisions we reached in St. Louis in March and
Edinburgh in May remain unchanged. I am merely cleaning
up a fat-fingered typo. In the interests of openness and
transparency, I am letting you know.

Howard Frazier
Chair, IEEE 802.3ah EFM Task Force
