RE: it's time for another poll

Title: RE: it's time for another poll

I'll start with my votes:


1) Should we accommodate crossover cables, i.e. take either polarity of power?  (more cost in the PD)
yes_____    no__X___
in order to save cost, let's accept straight through cables only

2) Should we require having a non-linear component in series with the signature resistor for discovery?
yes_____    no__X___
probably not necessary

3) Should we pick one and only one pair at this time to send power?
yes__X___    no_____

If yes, then pick one:    1236__X___     4578_____
I think that it will be hard enough to agree on one pair, let alone both.
It seems that 1236 will give the widest acceptance, let's leave use of the other pair open for the future.

4) Should we specify power for both pairs, with the second pair being optional for higher power?
yes_____    no__X___
same reasons, leave the second pair for the future

5) Should we leave open the possibility of using the second pair for power in the future?
yes__X___    no_____
Yes, allow for higher power in the future

6) If we were to allow power on both pairs,
should we make discovery on each pair independent of the power on the other pair?
yes__X___    no_____
Yes, the 2 pairs should be independent
