Re: [802.3af] 45Kmin instead of 70Kmin ?

Yair, John -

As I recall, the 70k number was intended to prevent two PSEs from detecting 
each other if they were erroneously connected together. Rick showed a 
presentation in St. Louis (if I remember right) that showed a possibility 
of detection if the source impedance was less than 60-some K. At the time I 
ran his numbers and agreed with them, but I'd have to look back at my notes 
to see how we got to to that number.

We do have text that allows any source impedance if there is a diode in 
series (so it's always 1st quadrant). 45K works fine this way.

I'd oppose this change, at least until I get a chance to look back at 
Rick's presentation.
