Are you two discussing specs for scsi subsystem development process
here, or are you discussing specs for scsi subsystem architecture?

In case of the latter: These are indispensable. The scope of the scsi
subsystem is big enough to benefit from following the T10 specs,
including their concepts, their layers. I am saying this as somebody who
is trying to bring one small part of the subsystem forward, who will
never be able to grasp what is going on throughout the whole subsystem
nor to learn all about all SCSI layers. Thereby, every bigger or smaller
layering violation, every common SCSI concept that I have trouble to
match with Linux' scsi concepts will be a bigger or smaller setback for
undertakings like mine. (Well, I'm stating the obvious, or so I hope.)
