The SAS, IB and FCoE targets, too..

SAS might be the most directly comparable to replace a traditional RAID
controller in a host.. Most other HBA's already look enough like a
RAID controller to potentially confuse the issue, and also run 
more directly head-to-head with the full-scale SAN model.  Some
machines have iSCSI boot in firmware for the motherboard NICs, so for
those that would be a viable comparison.

I'm talking primarily about sticker price and customer confusion here;
of course the architectural block diagram is the same regardless of
the PHY layer for scsi transport.
