Cf. section 6.4.2:
" On those occasions when an error or exception condition occurs and the
target elects to repeat the information transfer, the target may repeat the
transfer by either issuing a RESTORE POINTERS message or by disconnecting
without issuing a SAVE DATA POINTER message. When reconnection is completed,
the most recent saved pointer values are restored."
Granted, this does not imply anything for the "non-error/exception" case..
