[EFM] Clause 54 and 10GBASE-CX4

Title: Message
   I agree it would be logical for 10GBASE-CX4 to use Clause 54.
May be a clause needs to be reserved for 10GBASE-T too.
    I just wanted to make sure that people were aware of
the issue. I don't think many people involved in 802.3ah realise
that the Clauses in the 802.3ah draft document may need to be
    I have copied this message to the EFM reflector.

Hi Arthur,
Bob Grow has indicated to me that he will be requesting Howard Frazier
to accomodate our use of Clause 54 because our schedule is such that
10GBASE-CX4 is likely to be the next released document.
That said, I have not heard yet whether Howard has agreed to this.
I appreciate your point and I believe we have to make a decision quickly,
but for a "working paper" I believe that the point is not yet critical.

Dan, Howard,
   802.3ah were intending to use Clause 54 as an introduction for EFM.
   If you go with Clause 54 for CX4 then the 802.3ah draft will need to be modified
to free up Clause 54.
10GBASE-CX4 Study Group Members,
In anticipation of the editorial review we will want to perform
at the upcoming meeting in Vancouver, Howard Baumer has provided
a copy of his working paper proposal.
I have placed it on the 10GBASE-CX4 website at the following URL.
Please open and review that document and provide feedback to Howard as soon
as possible. You can reach him at hbaumer@xxxxxxxxxxxx.
