No. It's what the language of 15.8 says. It says ALL values reset, not
most values reset or some values reset or all values reset except.

15.8 is "the spec".

Does "the spec" have some special meaning for "all"? Where exactly does
the spec say reset to initial values does not mean reset to initial
values? It's plain english. If the plain english doesn't say what you
want it to say such that every reasonable person interprets it the same
way, find better words. Before 2.1 becomes final would be a good time to
do it.
