   We have confirmed that currently "UserParameter" attribute is only used by the Terminal Service and there is no any other Microsoft product that also uses this attribute. The Terminal Service doesn't use the first 96 bytes of the "UserParameter" attribute.  In order to avoid any confusion, we will rename "MSProductData" to "UnusedData" in the 2.3.1 of the future release of MS-TSTS.

   Please let us know if you have any more question, if not, I will consider this case closed.

The reference is good, but it seems there is a problem because of the way this parameter is split between products. 

In particular, while this may be true for MS-TSTS:
[MS-TSTS] 2.3.1 UserParamerters:
MSProductData (96 bytes): A 96 byte Unicode character array containing
48 Unicode characters. This field is not used by Microsoft Terminal Services.

We need to know the full decode of the structure, regardless of which product or document owns it.  In short, what is the meaning and expected contents of MSProductData?
