Re: 30 day preview PARs for 802.3


(1) On 802.3af, there is a small typo in the answer to Question 9 (an extra word "for").

(2) The two PARs use different formats. 802.3af seems to be the current IEEE version <>, but 802.3ae seems to be based on a rather old questionnaire.

(3) In the 802.3ae Five Criteria, I am curious about the sentence (in "Distinct Identity") that reads "Two PHY families will address two distinct application spaces, the LAN and the WAN":

-Can you say something about those two PHY families?
-Can you say more about how 802.3ae will address the WAN application space?

Perhaps you could just point me to a document.
