It's much easier tractable kind of statefulness. No matter how they
are called, they should be distinguished.
In UTF-16 for each boundary between characters you can find the
corresponding boundary in the encoded text, and the fragments can be
physically put together in a different order, as far as surrogates are
concerned (but not wrt. a BOM). This applies to UTF-8 too of course.
This is not true for ISO-2022.
