555 says "when it changes" but not by how much. How much was one of my 
original questions.

How about this then?  SCI on x% delta.  A change of this % in _either_ 
direction will generate an SCI.  OFW can start by setting x to 5% and 
the kernel is free to change it to smaller or larger values if it 
pleases or 0% to disable.
