Outside of your comment regarding multi-pathing I agree with you. Especially with regards to the Italians that, for all intents and purposes, drove FCoE through the FC-BB-5 standards process. There were a few others who were heavily involved and made important contributions but (IMHO) I think FC-BB-5 would still be debating things like "SPMA versus FPMA" if it weren't for two Italians in particular.

With regards to multipathing, I do not agree that iSCSI and FC/FCoE require different multipathing software (e.g., PowerPath). The MP stuff operates above the transport layer in the storage stack.
