UCD9248: Why is status_word not paged

Part Number: UCD9248

The status byte and status word pmbus commands are marked as common in SLUU337.

Since these registers report errors such as over-current (which are paged), this is somewhat strange. 

The detailed registers (e.g. STATUS_IOUT) are paged.

So, checking the general status is easier by the non-paged status_word, but in case of a fault all pages of

the corresponding register needs to be read.

I guess there is no way to find directly out which page caused the fault.
