... but this state cannot be reached otherwise than after a successful
call to mbrtowc() which returned the final L'\0', and in such a case it
is already a requirement for the resulting state to "shall be the
initial conversion state."

template is probably of belt-and-suspenders kind (which doesn't hurt.)
