Note that because of this ambiguity, it should be recommanded to encode the special RESET byte (FF) after the leading byte, i.e. using a leading BOM as: FB EE 28 FF
This way, the new state after BOM is reset to the initial value prev=0x0040!
I also think that the sentence describing the 3 byte sequence should explicitly say that it effectively encodes the difference 0xFEFF-0x0040 = 0xFEBF using the base-243 encoding.
Note that there's no provision elsewhere in the specification that indicates that U+FEFF resets the state (only the ASCII characters except SPACE, and the RESET code FF have this effect).
