Hi Dan

Do you mean between PCIe devices below the RAID controller? Isn't it pretty novel to be able to support PCIe EPs below a RAID controller (as opposed to SCSI based devices)?

Agreed. I think this would be great. Kind of like the XCOPY framework that was proposed a while back for SCSI devices [1] but updated to also include NVMe devices. That is definitely a use case we would like this framework to support.
