RE: PD power start up

My straw poll reply:

Choice #2.  Nice, simple definition.  Meets our original intent, I think.

	I believe we have two choices.
	Choice 1:  Define a special start up case for the PD.
			In this state the PD is allowed to violate steady
state requirements.
			The PD may drop the line voltage to zero.
			The PD may draw any current level.
			The PSE will supply current at a level about 1.5
times the steady state value.
			The time for the start up state is limited to X ms.
	Choice 2: The PD meets steady state requirements.
			In order to receive power the PD input voltage is
>30 volts and the PD current is >10ma and <350ma.
	Some violations are allowed for Y ms.
	Can we have a straw poll?
