Just going back a step, shouldn't it be worded something like

Because that's actually what we mean.
Also, saying 'or a command that does not require that a mail transaction
be open' means that you could use an SMTP extension which was advertised
before the STARTTLS, as long as it doesn't involve a mail transaction,
without resending EHLO.
No, because the client must disregard the pre-TLS extension list because
the protocol is reset to its initial state.
