But couldn't both of those have been documented? And if they have not 
been, might be classed as incompetent. They are after all just part of 
the modem instruction set.

To not release the entire lot is a bit lame.

But seriously, who cares, just test what we know and move on. If we find 
out more we'll test that too ... hoorah! if someone wants to pressure 
them then let us know how you go. This mailling list suffers from way 
too much banter clutter. I'm surprised OM get anything done.
