One thing it would add is me closing this bug report instead of keeping it
open... which i will continue to do until satisfied...

As for multiple interpretations, it is obvious to the most naive reader that
both consequents may apply simultaneously, e.g., both of the following may be

* One byte in the range FE to FF
    -> The whole sequence must be replaced by a single U+FFFD REPLACEMENT
* One byte in the range 80 to BF not preceded by a byte in the range 80 to FD
    -> Each byte must be replaced with a U+FFFD REPLACEMENT CHARACTER.

In this case, which of the two consequents apply? You may say the first? Why is
that? Why not the second? Since you have not bothered to explain this syntax,
either interpretation is valid.

Please do your readers a favor and just add a simple explanation under the
conventions section, and I will be happy to close this bug.
