634 status consistency
Created: 27 Feb 2009
Status: Future Improvement
Part: Part 7-420 (2008; DER)
Category: Issue for edition 2 of this part
Many possible combinations of status indicate known inconsistent states. For example, a device cannot be both starting and stopping at the same time. The present situation would force each client to read all objects and then perform consistency checks on every access.
Add text indicating that it is the responsibility of the server to present consistent information at the interface. For example, both ModStr and ModStop must not both be simultaneously TRUE.
