[Sls-slp] Proximity-1 question: send side and receive side signals

Dear SLS-CC and SLS-SLP members,

The current published Proximity-1 Blue Books describe CARRIER_ACQUIRED
and BIT_INLOCK_STATUS as send side signals, from the Physical layer to
the MAC sublayer.  The information supplied by the signals clearly comes
from the receiver, but the MAC sublayer uses the information during
session establishment.

Ed Greenberg has proposed changes to describe these two signals as
receive side signals.

>From the point of view of Proximity-1 as a whole, do these signals
belong to the send side or the receive side?  Does the currently
published description need to be changed?

Best regards,
