1360 Variable length Quality encoding
Created: 05 Mar 2015
Status: Not Applicable
Category: Issue for edition 2 of this part
This clause specifies for Quality: "shall be encoded as a variable length bit-string. Bits that are not conveyed shall assume the default value as specified in this Subclause". The BER encoding rules state that trailing 0-bits can be removed. This always implies a default value of zero! Which may cause a mismatch in case a (future) default value is 1.
Clarify if/when removing of trailing 0-bits is allowed for variable length bit-strings.
