  • Disposition Summary:

    Clarify validity of byte data in AlertDataExtraAttributes

    Strings are an array of UTF-8 characters without null termination
    Multiple values of a particular data type are valid
    The size of the value must be a multiple of the type of data unit size for Integer 16, 32 or 64
    There should be a specific type (7) for media types. The description string should be the type / substype tree for media types.
