The sentence is so unreadable that it's hard to suggest something. It starts with a general statement but ends with an example. I think it should be split in two: general statement with a full sentence (now it seems to end at "letter" ?) and then add the example. Also add "to" before "prefix" and "start".

When reading that: "The editor is encouraged to define it in a way consistent with this", it did not seem so.
